For the second straight year, the Toledo men’s tennis team earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association all-academic team honors with four student-athletes being recognized as scholar-athletes.

The junior duo of Vincent Anzalone and Luka Vitosevic along with Danilo Pejovic and sophomore Thawin Suksathaporn were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholar-athletes. Anzalone and Vitosevic were named scholar-athletes for the second straight year.

Head Coach Al Wermer talked to the tennis team.

Transfer Danilo Vukotic also earned scholar-athlete honors. Vukotic joins the Rockets after transferring from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

“We’re very proud of our guys’ efforts in the classroom and the great academic support UT Athletics provides,” said Head Coach Al Wermer. “Our challenges last year with injuries did not deter their academic success. We also have a few more guys who barely missed this GPA threshold.”

It’s the second straight year in which the Rockets have earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association all-academic team honors. During the spring semester, the team had an overall grade point average of 3.4. Toledo along with Ball State and Western Michigan earned all-academic team honors from the Mid-American Conference.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association all-academic team award is open to any member program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale).

In order to earn Intercollegiate Tennis Association scholar-athlete status, a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letter winner; have a GPA of at least 3.50 for the current academic year; and have been enrolled at her present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
