ITA Announces Scholar-Athlete and All-Academic Award Teams List
July 24, 2018

Forty-four Big 12 student-athletes were named to the ITA Scholar-Athlete Award list for the 2017-18 Men’s and Women’s Tennis season.

Of the 44 listed, 33 were women’s tennis players and 11 men’s.

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a varsity letter winner, have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.0 scale) for the current academic year and be enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).

Not only were the student-athletes recognized as ITA Scholar-Athletes, but athletic programs themselves were tabbed as ITA All-Academic Teams as well through the success of it’s student-athletes.

In order to qualify for the team honor, a program must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.0 scale). All varsity letter winners were factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year (including Fall 2017 and Spring 2018).

On the women’s side, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and West Virginia were honored with the recognition. The men’s side saw Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech earn spots on the list.

Oklahoma State walked away with nine honorees, the most of any Big 12 program, after a successful season that saw the women’s doubles pairing of Vladica Babic/Sofia Blanco reach the championship match for the first time in program history.
