UA’s Tim Shuler Named to SEC Good Works Team
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Tim Shuler, a senior tennis player at Arkansas, has been named to the Southeastern Conference’s at-large Good Works Team.

The SEC’s Good Works Team honors student-athletes for athletic achievement and community service. The at-large team represents 17 SEC sponsored sports.

Shuler, from Schertz, Texas, posted a 10-7 singles record this year, helping the Razorbacks go 16-10, earn a No. 26 national ranking from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. In doubles, Shuler was 3-0 with three different partners.

Shuler’s biggest win came on April 2 when he won the deciding match at No. 6 singles, 6-4, 7-6, over Rodrigo Pacheco to give the Hogs a 4-3 victory against No. 28 South Carolina.

Off the court, the kinesiology major participated in the Arkansas Athletes Outreach Spring Fling, Razorback for a Day and Razorbacks for Christmas programs, visited children at area hospitals and helped coordinate Challenge for Champions, a charity fund-raising tennis tournament.

Shuler was recently named to the SEC’s Academic Honor Roll for maintaining a 3.0 grade point average or higher for the past year.
