Voted on by the league’s head coaches, seniors Mike Redlicki and Jose Salazar earned first team All-SEC honors announced by the conference office on Wednesday.

Redlicki was voted to the first team for the second consecutive season, making him the first Razorback since Oskar Johansson in 2000 and 2001 to earn first team honors in back-to-back years.

After being named to the second team a year ago, Salazar picks up first team honors for the first time in his career.

Arkansas has placed multiple individuals onto an All-SEC team in consecutive seasons for the first time in 12 seasons.

The duo ranks as the third best doubles squad in the country after going 10-6 in the spring, 13-7 overall during their final season.

The pairing went 4-3 against ranked SEC foes this season, including victories over No. 18 Max Hinnisdaels and Conner Huertas of Auburn and No. 21 Jack Schipanski and Luis Valero of Tennessee.

Individually, Redlicki heads into championship play ranked as the No. 10 singles player in the country, while Salazar comes in at No. 34.

Climbing as high as No. 3, Redlicki spent six straight rankings in the top 10 and never fell further than his preseason ranking of No. 11. Salazar started his senior campaign at No. 45 and rose to as high as No. 19.

Redlicki is 27-10 overall this season, 10-8 this spring. The Duke transfer has faced a ranked opponent in 26 of his 37 matches during his senior campaign, holding a 19-7 overall record and 8-6 during the spring.

Salazar leads the team with a 29-8 overall record, including an impressive 18-5 mark this spring and 9-3 against SEC opponents.

The Oklahoma transfer is 8-4 overall against ranked opponents, 6-1 this spring and is 4-1 against ranked SEC foes. Salazar is also 7-2 away from home this season and 5-1 on the road against SEC opponents.
