Temple’s men and women tennis players were recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association for their academic excellence.

The men’s team received the status of ITA All-Academic Team. Also, five men’s players, Maros Januvka, Kristian Marquart, Kacper Rams, Sam Rundle and Hernan Vasconez were named 2013 Division I Men’s Scholar-Athletes.

Likewise, three women’s players, Carly Bohman, Alicia Doms and Jasmine Merali were named 2013 Division I Women’s Scholar-Athletes.

To receive ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a varsity letterwinner with a grade point average of at least 3.50 for the current academic year and is enrolled in the present year for at least two semesters.

Maquart, a junior from Germany, maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average throughout the school year.

While Bohman, a senior from Ontario, finished the school year with a 3.98 grade point average, which included a 4.0 during the fall semester.

To earn the ITA All-Academic Team award, the players must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20. The men’s team had a 3.59 for the 2012-2013 academic year.

As the fall season is fast approaching, the men will begin their practices on Sept. 4th and the women will begin on Sept. 11th.
