Women?s Tennis Earns ITA Academic Honors
“I am very proud of our team for earning academic honors from the ITA,” stated Head Coach Amy Bonner. “The team makes academics a priority and it is nice to be recognized as a team and individually for doing so.”
This is the third honor for the team in Bonner’s reign. The Eagles also earned the award in 2004 and 2009.
To be eligible for the academic award, an ITA program must have a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year. All eligible student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA eligibility form and have competed in one or more varsity matches must average into the GPA for the academic year, which included the fall 2009 and spring 2010 semesters.
The women’s tennis team earned a cumulative team GPA of 3.33 for the 2009-10 academic year.
Ali Beavers (Kingsport, Tenn.), Christine Caforio (Acworth, Ga.), Kristi Kegerreis (Fairfax, Va.), Alexandra Langmo (Boca Raton, Fla.) and Melanie Rolle (Gainesville, Fla.) were each honored as ITA Student-Athletes. To earn the 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 two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
