Five GSW student-athletes earn ITA All-Academic Team honors

By Keith Michlig

 

AMERICUS – The Georgia Southwestern State University women’s tennis team earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Team distinction for the third consecutive year as the Lady Hurricanes placed five student-athletes on the Scholar-Athlete list revealed today by the ITA for the 2019-20 season.

Senior Alexandria Rhodes finished the year with a perfect 4.00 grade point average to earn her second ITA Scholar-Athlete award. Hannah Hogg completed her academic requirements a year early and joined Rhodes with back-to-back Scholar-Athlete recognition. Newcomers Andrea Cervantes and Carla Sorroche earned the distinction in their first season and sophomore Sophia Winters picked up her first ITA award. The Scholar-Athlete award is given to all varsity letter winners with at least a 3.5 grade point average (on a 4.00 scale) for the academic year.

GSW was one of seven Peach Belt programs to earn the All-Academic Team recognition, joining Augusta University, Columbus State University, Francis Marion University, Georgia College, the University of North Georgia and Young Harris College. The Lady Hurricanes posted a team grade point average of 3.586.

The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team GPA of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale). All varsity letter winners are factored into the cumulative team GPA for the academic year (including fall 2019 and spring 2020).
