Alabama Women’s Tennis Places Six on ITA Scholar-Athlete Team

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. –– The Alabama women’s tennis program saw six student-athletes earn Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athlete honors, the organization announced on Monday. Alabama has now placed at least six student-athletes on the academic list for seven straight years.  

Anne Marie Hiser and Sydney Orefice both recorded their third ITA Scholar-Athlete nod after being recognized as both a freshman and a sophomore. Ansley Cheshire, Kasia Pitak and Ola Pitak all received the academic honor for the second straight year, while freshman Klara Milicevic was named to the list for the first time.

Alabama also earned ITA All-Academic Team honors after recording a 3.60 GPA in the fall and a 3.66 GPA in the spring.

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 are factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year.

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: Be a varsity letter winner; have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year; and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
