The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) has announced its team and individual academic awards for the 2017-18 school year.
Luther was recognized as an ITA All-Academic team and four student-athletes earned ITA Scholar-Athlete honors.
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.

The four student-athletes named ITA Scholar Athletes were senior Jackie Cychosz (Apple Valley, Minn./Eastview), sophomore Ellie Hemker (Winona, Minn./Winona Senior) and freshmen Stephanie Almquist (Delano, Minn.) and Cory Eull (St. Michael, Minn./St. Michael-Albertville).
