ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - UCF's women's tennis team picked up a prestigious honor as it earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Team distinction, while Sofia Baptista, Cortney Cesarini and Courtney Griffith received ITA Scholar-Athlete status.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA member program that has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20 or above. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete recognition, a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letterwinner, have a GPA of at least 3.50 for the current academic year and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
In May, the women's tennis program was honored by the NCAA for its Academic Progress Rate (APR), as it was the third straight year it was recognized with a perfect multi-year APR score of 1,000.
The Knights were the first UCF program to receive this honor by the NCAA in 2012.
