DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s tennis team earned a spot on this year’s Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Teams list. Additionally, seven Blue Devils were recognized as ITA Scholar-Athletes.

Ryan Dickerson, Spencer Furman, Jason Lapidus, Robert Levine, Catalin Mateas, Sean Sculley and Nick Stachowiak were among the seven Blue Devils that received the honor.

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 were factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year (including fall 2017 and spring 2018).

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least 2 semesters (including freshman through senior year).
