Florida schools garnered two awards when the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its national winners for NCAA Division I tennis honors this week.
 
The University of Miami's Alex Santos won the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year (women), and University of Florida No. 1 Lauren Embree was named the ITA National Senior Player of the Year.
 
Santos helped the Hurricanes become one of the most consistent programs in the nation, reaching their fifth-straight NCAA Division I Women's Team Championship quarterfinal this season. Miami also claimed its first ACC Tournament title in program history this season after taking down regular-season champion North Carolina in the semifinals.
 
Santos also brings a wealth of strength and conditioning knowledge to the program which has helped the Hurricanes to become one of the fittest teams in the country each season, contributing greatly to their on-court success.
 
Embree has continued her winning ways in her final season in Gainesville, as she is ranked No. 1 in the nation in the ITA Women's Singles Rankings and claimed the 2012 ITA/Riviera Women's All-American Championships singles crown. She is the top overall seed entering the 2013 NCAA Division I Women's Singles Championships after an undefeated regular season.
 
The Gator senior has compiled nearly 120 singles victories during her career while playing an integral role in Florida's back-to-back national titles in 2011 and 2012, providing the clinching point both years. Embree finishes her career a perfect 38-0 against SEC foes while also becoming the only three-time SEC Player of the Year in conference history.
