Six Bulldogs Earn ITA Academic Honors
July 30, 2004
The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), the governing body of collegiate tennis, announced its All-Academic Team earlier this week and six Bulldogs took individual honors, while the men's team was one of 35 Division I teams to earn All-Academic Team accolades.
Junior Adam Bordow and freshmen Evan West and Chris Peric earned individual academic honors on the men's side, while women's team seniors Christina Laun and Laurel Clements and sophomore Kristen Haider also made the list.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale). All eligible student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA eligibility form and have competed in one or more varsity matches must average into the GPA for the current academic year (including fall 2003 and spring 2004).
In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least 2 semesters (including freshman thorough senior year).
