ETSU tennis teams receive ITA recognition

SKILLMAN, N.J. (Aug. 12, 2013) – The ETSU men’s and women’s tennis teams, as well as individual members of each squad, have been recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) for their academic achievements in the classroom.

Both Buccaneer teams earned the ITA All-Academic Team award after attaining cumulative GPAs of 3.20 or above during the 2012-13 academic school year. The women’s squad achieved an impressive cumulative GPA of 3.599, while the men posted a solid mark of 3.423.

ETSU was one of three schools in the Atlantic Sun conference to receive the team award, along with Kennesaw State and Stetson.

Twelve Buccaneer athletes, seven women and five men, were awarded ITA Scholar-Athlete status for attaining GPAs of at least 3.50.

Seniors Guilia Andreazza, Salma Dahbi, and Sofia Espana represented the women’s team, along with juniors Jessica Brumit, Lyn Yee Choo (redshirt sophomore), Kelsey Williams, and sophomore Augustina Amon. Only nine women’s programs nationwide had more honorees than ETSU.

On the men’s side, senior Roger Ordeig, juniors Fernando Amon, Ricardo Pabon (redshirt sophomore), and Rogerio Ribeiro, and freshman Ismael Merino also achieved ITA Scholar-Athlete status.
