UC Davis men's tennis standout Greg Lee, who amassed a total of 147 wins in his career from 2000 to 2003, earned induction into the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame during ceremonies on June 4. He is the first tennis player to enter the Hall of Fame since Mark Segesta, who was inducted in 2001.

Despite playing after the influx of foreign talent into collegiate tennis, Lee managed a win total second only to Segesta in school history. He tallied a 70-28 record in singles, including a 26-5 mark as a senior. In doubles, Lee compiled a 77-24 ledger. He earned three All-America awards in singles during his career, and teamed with Paul Dilloway for a 2003 All-America in doubles. That year, Lee won the university's Colby E. "Babe" Slater Award as male athlete of the year.

In the classroom, Lee won CoSIDA Academic All-District honors three times, adding Academic All-America status as a senior. He also won Arthur Ashe, Jr. Minority Sports Scholar and NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship awards.
