Tennis teams recognized for academic success

Aug. 19, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's men's and women's tennis programs have long-established reputations for academic excellence, which they added to during 2003-04.

Both squads were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Teams after posting team grade-point-averages of better than 3.20. The Bronco women, with a 3.62 cumulative team GPA, were among 83 teams honored and earned the accolade for the eighth-straight season. The men's tennis team had a cumulative 3.26 GPA for the year and were among 35 men's squads tabbed for the
award. The men have claimed the ITA recognition six of the past seven years.

Individually, men's players Brady Crosby, Tommy Dennis (4.0 GPA), Jeff French and Justin Kates claimed ITA Scholar Athlete accolades. Women's players Rattiya Hiranrat, Carrie Jeanmaire, Reedhina Parekh (4.0 GPA) and Malena Remynse earned the same honor.

Student-athletes must be varsity letter winners, own grade-point-averages of 3.50-or-better and have been enrolled for at least two semesters to qualify for ITA individual honors.
