ATLANTA -- The Georgia State women's tennis was honored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as a 2017 All-Academic Team, and four individuals were recognized as ITA Scholar-Athletes.
Georgia State's ITA Scholar-Athletes for 2016-17 are senior Tarani Kamoe, junior Kristin Rehse, sophomore Daniela Ramirez and freshman Ilona Golynker. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a student-athlete must be a varsity letter winner with a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year and must have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
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). All varsity letter winners were factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year (including fall 2016 and spring 2017).
In all, 720 teams and 3,908 student-athletes across all five divisions of college tennis were honored.
Georgia State, coached by Jason Marshall, is coming off a 13-9 record in 2017 as the Panthers recorded their fourth straight winning season while posting a 3.74 team GPA for the spring semester.
