SKILLMAN, N.J. – The Marist women’s tennis team has been honored as a 2013 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Team. It is the third consecutive year that the Red Foxes have earned this distinction.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale). All eligible student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA/CA JUCO eligibility form and have competed in one or more varsity matches must average into the GPA for the current academic year (including fall 2012 and spring 2013).
Additionally, four individual Red Foxes earned ITA Scholar-Athlete status. Junior Marielle Campbell (Patterson, N.Y.) was recognized for the second time in her career, as she was also named a Scholar-Athlete in 2011. Freshmen Kaye Eastman (Grand Rapids, Mich.), Nikki Rohan (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) and Adrienne Sieverding (Red Hook, N.J.) all earned the distinction for the first 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).
