WOMEN’S TENNIS EARNS TEAM AND INDIVIDUAL ITA ACADEMIC AWARDS
SKILLMAN, N.J. – The Sacramento State women's tennis team and four of its members have earned academic awards from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).
As a team the Hornets earned the ITA All-Academic Team award, available to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale) for the academic year. The GPAs of all nine Hornets that compete during the spring season factored into the cumulative average.
Sacramento State combined for a 3.29 cumulative team GPA during the 2013-14 academic year. The Hornets earned the award for the third time in the last four years and were one of just five Big Sky women's tennis teams to receive the accolade this season.
Individually, seniors Katharina Knoebl and Sophie Lohscheidt, sophomore Olivia Boija, and freshman Andie Mouzes were named ITA Scholar Athletes. Knoebl and Lohscheidt each earned the award for the fourth time in their four years at Sacramento State while Boija garnered the honor for the second time.
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).
