KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Western Michigan men’s tennis team was named an All-Academic Team by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) while five individuals were named Scholar Athletes in Andrew Cahn, Ruben Greiner, Matt Hamilton, Daniel Loebel and Eric Olivarez. In order to become an ITA Scholar-Athlete, a player must achieve a grade point average of at least 3.50 over the course of the season.

This is the 16th time WMU has won the honor, and the 11th time in the last 12 years under head coach Dave Morin.

“Our guys did a fantastic job this year both in the classroom and on the court,” Morin said. “To have the year we had and excel academically requires a lot of hard work and discipline and I’m really proud of our student-athletes.”

Individually, the Broncos had four players finish with a perfect 4.00 spring semester in Cahn, Hamilton, Loebel and Olivarez. Loebel leads the team with a 4.00 overall GPA while Hamilton sits at 3.98, Greiner at 3.83, Olivarez at 3.82 and Cahn at 3.75.
