May 15, 2021

ORLANDO, Fla. – Annette Goulak, a senior at UCLA, was honored Saturday as the recipient of the Elite 90 award for the 2021 NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Championship.

Goulak, majoring in psychology, currently carries a 4.0 cumulative GPA. She was presented with the award at the Bruins' afternoon practice in Orlando, Fla. Fourth-seeded UCLA is set to meet No. 13 seed Georgia Tech in a round-of-16 match Sunday at 1 p.m., PT.

The Elite 90, an award founded by the NCAA, recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. The Elite 90 is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA's championships.

Eligible student-athletes are sophomores or above who have participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. All ties are broken by the number of credits completed.

Goulak, who transferred from the University of Georgia in June 2019, has made the Athletic Director's Honor Roll for each of her five quarters at UCLA. She is attempting to become a four-time ITA Scholar-Athlete.

On the court, Goulak has racked up a team-high 68 total wins over her two seasons as a Bruin.
