Happy Birthday - June 5: Boris Conkic, David Holmes

On June 5, we'd like to wish Happy Birthday to recently former tennis great Boris Conkic and golf standout David Holmes. 

A four-time All-SEC performer from 2008-11, Conkic is one of only four players in program history to record at least 100 career wins in both singles and doubles. He and John-Patrick Smith teamed up as seniors to form the 2011 ITA Doubles Team of the Year. Conkic now coaches tennis in his home country of Serbia and also plays club tennis in Germany.

Holmes, a native of Knoxville, was an All-American for the Vols on the golf course from 2007-2010. He turned pro in 2011 and is currently playing primarily on the NGA Tour. Here is an interview from earlier this year with the NGA:
