Cougar Tennis 'Three-Peats' As Glenn Kranc Award Recipients
March 13, 2002
PULLMAN, Wash. - For the third consecutive semester, the Washington State University tennis team received the Glenn Kranc Award, recognizing the WSU athletic team that earned the highest semester GPA.
The Glenn Kranc Award, which was named in honor of a loyal Cougar supporter, was established in 1991. The tennis team - NCAA Tournament participants in three of the past four years, including last season - posted a 3.41 grade point average over the 2001 fall semester.
'I think this shows what tremendous student-athletes they are,' said coach Cari Groce of her team capturing the award. 'They are performing on the court and in the classroom at a very high level.'
'It says a lot about this group of young ladies that are achieving this high GPA,' Groce added. 'I am extremely proud of them.'
Senior Erica Perkins, a 2001 Verizon Academic All-America District VIII second team selection, earned a 4.00 GPA over the fall semester. Sophomore Zorana Roganovic and freshmen Zsofia Fodor and Chris Martinez earned above a 3.5 GPA while sophomore Lorena Arias and freshman Nora Gaal earned above a 3.0 GPA over the semester.
The Cougars return to action, Wednesday, March 20 against Arkansas at Honolulu, Hawaii.
