Huskies Earn ITA Academic Acclaim
Aug. 2, 2005
SEATTLE - The Washington men's tennis team was named an ITA All-Academic Team and Huskies Andy Kuharszky, Alex Slovic and Alex Vlaski were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for the 2005 season, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced last week.
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 and all eligible student-athletes have competed in one or more varsity matches must average into the GPA for the current academic year.
To earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must meet the following criteria: 1) be a varsity letterwinner, 2) have a grade point average of at least 3.5 for the current academic year and 3) have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
The academic honor for Vlaski is one of many, as the departed senior was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America third-team and the Pac-10 All-Academic first-team. Slovic was a Pac-10 All-Academic second-team selection this year.
