Women's Tennis Team Named ITA All-Academic Team; Mannix, Gregara-Cano, Berghaus Earn ITA Scholar-Athlete Status
Kim Berghaus was the America East Conference's Rookie of the Year
Three UMBC women's tennis players were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athletes for the 2010-11 academic year.
Recent graduate Emily Mannix (Hillsborough, N.J.), rising junior Julia Gregara-Cano (Badajoz, Spain) and rising sophomore Kim Berghaus (Offenbach, Germany) were the three UMBC women’s student-athletes named to the team.
In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman thorough senior year).
In addition, Head Coach Rob Hubbard’s team earned ITA All-Academic team accolades. 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 (on a 4.00 scale).
“I am very proud of the academic achievements of these student-athletes as they continue to excel not just on the court but in the classroom as well," Hubbard said.
