Men’s Tennis Team Receives All-Academic Honors
For the ninth consecutive year, Stetson men’s tennis has been recognized for academic excellence by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
In addition to receiving team honors, four Hatters earned ITA Scholar-Athlete accolades.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any member program that has a cumulative team grade-point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale). The 2016-17 Hatters finished the year with an impressive 3.4 GPA.
ITA Scholar-Athletes must have at least a 3.50 grade-point average during the 2016-17 academic year and been enrolled at least two semesters at their respective institutions.
Graham Ball, Loic Blanco, Coilin MacNamara and John Horoz Garner were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for the recently concluded academic year.
“Excelling on and off the court is what our student-athletes are striving to achieve, and what we emphasize as a program and institution,” Head Coach Christophe Noblet said. “It is never an easy task to accomplish, knowing the time commitment and effort our players are putting on the court, as well as traveling and competing. I am very proud of Graham, Loic, Coilin, and John, for being recognized as scholar athletes.”
Since 1998, a total of 80 Stetson men’s tennis student-athletes have been named as ITA Scholar-Athletes.
