Two women’s tennis players receive Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholarship recognition, team also honored

Senior Sidnay Huck and junior Claire Aleck have earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholar-athlete honors for the 2017 season.

“I’m so proud of Sid and Claire to be named Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholar-athletes,” said Head Coach Tracy Mauntler. “They are great leaders on and off the court, and they do an amazing job of balancing life as a student-athlete.”

The women’s tennis team earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association all-academic team honors and joined Akron, Ball State and Western Michigan as the only schools from the Mid-American Conference to earn the award.

Both Aleck and Huck were named Academic All-MAC this season. Aleck in singles play had a record of 13-17 and captured seven two-set victories. Huck earned MAC Doubles Player of the Week honors twice with partner Deedee Leenabanchong and registered a doubles record of 19-10 and 14-6 in dual matches.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association all-academic team award is open to any member program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale).

In order to earn Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholar-athlete status, a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letter winner; have a GPA of at least 3.50 for the current academic year; and have been enrolled at her present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
