TEMPE, Ariz. – Five Southern Conference men’s tennis teams were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Teams and 29 SoCon student-athletes from six schools were named ITA Scholar-Athletes when the organization announced its annual academic awards Tuesday.

 

Mercer, UNCG, Samford, Chattanooga and Wofford earned the team distinction. Three student-athletes from ETSU earned individual mention.

 

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 varsity letter winners should be factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year (including fall 2016 and spring 2017).

 

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 through senior year).
