The academic achievements of the Belmont’s tennis teams were honored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) as they announced their Academic Awards for the 2009-2010 school year.
Both of Belmont’s tennis teams were named an ITA All-Academic team. To be chosen for this honor, a squad must have a cumulative team grade point average (GPA) of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale) and all team members must have competed during the 2009-2010 season. The men’s team, who finished with a team GPA of 3.35, was one of 29 teams honored in Division I and one of three Atlantic Sun Conference squads among the list of schools. It marked the ninth straight year they have been honored with this award. The women’s team finished the year with a team GPA of 3.253. They were among 57 teams honored in Division I and one of just two Atlantic Sun schools to earn the award. In addition, it marks the fifth time since 2003 that the women’s program has been honored by the ITA. Click here for more on this story.
