The Hobart College tennis team is one of only 44 men’s tennis teams nationwide to be named a 2011 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Team. Five Statesmen were also recognized as ITA Scholar-Athletes.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or higher. To earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a varsity letter winner, have a GPA of at least 3.5 for the current academic year, and have been enrolled at her school for at least two semesters.
The following Hobart student-athletes were tabbed ITA Scholar-Athletes:
- Kevin Bates ’12, English major
- Sam DeLuccia ’13, biology major
- Walter Green ’12, psychology major
- Matt Hursh ’12, public policy studies and political science double major
- Kevin Kent ’12, urban studies major
Bates, Green, and Hursh are all making their third consecutive appearance on the ITA Scholar-Athlete roll.
The Statesmen finished the 2010-11 season with an 11-10 record, their first winning season since 2003-04. With a 7-2 victory over St. Lawrence, Hobart clinched third place in the Liberty League Tournament.
