ATLANTA – With seven members receiving academic honors, the Georgia State women's tennis team performed at a high level on and off the court this season.
Freshman Arina Taluyenko rounded out the academic honors after being named to the AD Honor Roll.
The Panthers netted a cumulative GPA of 3.64 for the academic year. The team earned a 3.74 GPA for the spring semester. The total was the fourth-highest among all female teams this spring.
The Georgia State Department of Athletics shattered all previous records with a 3.30 grade-point average for the spring semester and 227 student-athletes earning academic honors.
The 3.30 GPA topped the previous semester record of 3.18 set last spring. The outstanding semester gives the athletic department a GPA of 3.22 for the 2016-17 academic year. The combined cumulative GPA for all student-athletes now sits at 3.25, also an all-time high.
A record 51 student-athletes earned President's List recognition, Georgia State's highest academic distinction signifying a semester GPA of 4.0 or higher. Rhett Harper of the baseball team and women's golfer Solene Le Coz were the top individuals, each with a 4.30 semester GPA - straight A-plusses.
Eighty-seven individuals achieved Dean's List status with a semester GPA of 3.5-3.99, also a high for the department, and another 89 student-athletes made the Athletic Director's Honor Roll with a 3.0 or higher.
