NORMAN, Okla.—Sooners Guillermo Alcorta, Dane Webb and Axel Alvarez were recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) with the announcement of their 2014 All-All America Teams for NCAA Division 1 Men’s and Women’s Tennis Thursday.

The trio make up the third, fourth and fifth Sooners to be named All-Americans in singles following Costin Paval (2012) and Oliver Lorin (1987, 1988).

Webb became a two-time All-American with the honor as he was named to the 2012 doubles team with partner Paval.
