SFA tennis receives GCAA academic honor.
July 31, 2013
The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack tennis team has been named a 2013 All-Academic team for recording at least a 3.0 grade-point average announced the GCAA Wednesday afternoon. SFA is one of only 80 NCAA Division I institutions named to the list, and one of only four schools in the state of Texas to be named to the list. In addition, only one other Southland Conference school received GCAA academic honors.
For teams to be eligible for the honor, GPA's for every player on the roster must be submitted for the academic year.
Despite losing four starters, and several all-conference honors from the season before, and having no seniors on the 2013 roster, the Ladyjacks fought their way back into the Southland Conference Championship tournament last season. The Ladyjacks closed out the year with a 10-13 overall record and went 5-4 in conference play.
