. . . and Takes Academic Honors

The 2004 Moravian College women’s tennis team, which participated in the conference championship match for the 11th straight season last fall, was named a 2005 Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Team for the fourth consecutive year. A total of 237 NCAA schools earn the ITA All-Academic Award.

Nine of the Greyhounds’ individual players, seniors Julie Anderson, Marion Berry, and Becky Deringer; juniors Katie Cooke and Nicole Gruber; sophomores Courtney Hall and Margo Kokolus; and freshmen Leah Bradshaw and Jennel Yelito earned ITA Scholar-Athlete honors for maintaining at least a 3.50 GPA, earning a varsity letter, and being enrolled for at least two semesters.

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. All eligible student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA/NAIA eligibility form and have competed in one or more matches are averaged into the cumulative grade-point average for the relevant year (fall 2004 and spring 2005).

Nicole Gruber ’06 was on the Commonwealth All-Conference tennis team this year.
