ITA Academic Awards
SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento State men's tennis team and five of its players earned academic honors from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).
As a team, the Hornets earned the ITA All-Academic Team award, available to any program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or better during the 2018-19 academic year. The Hornets currently have a 3.477 team GPA, and were recently named Sacramento State's Men's Academic Team of the Year for the third straight season.
Individually, seniors Mikus Losbergs and Bernardo Moraes, junior Louis Chabut and freshmen Abdulaziz Albayouk and Josh Snowdon-Poole were each named ITA Scholar-Athletes. Losbergs has now received the honor three straight years, and Moraes, who was recently named Sacramento State's Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, received the award for the second straight season. In addition, Chabut has earned ITA Scholar-Athlete honors three straight seasons, and every year of his collegiate career.
The five players were part of a Hornet squad that finished tied for second in the Big Sky Conference with a 7-3 league record. Losbergs was a first team all-conference selection in both singles and doubles while playing all year at the No. 1 spot in the team's singles and doubles lineup. Chabut played primarily at Nos. 3 and No. 5 in the lineup while Snowdon-Poole played matches at No. 6.
To earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letterwinner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the 2018-19 academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least 2 semesters.
