June 15, 2011

The Arizona State women's tennis team has placed seven student-athletes on the 2011 Pac-10 All-Academic tennis team, the conference announced.

The Sun Devils earned the most honors of any Pac-10 school on the list with seven.

Senior Kelcy McKenna earned her third consecutive Pac-10 All-Academic first-team honor, graduating in December with a 3.86 GPA in elementary education. McKenna was also one one-hundredth of a point shy of holding the highest GPA in the Pac-10, coming second to Washington State's Elizabeth Fournier, who holds a 3.87 in economics.

Senior Micaela Hein and juniors Michelle Brycki, Deirdre Cienki, and Sianna Simmons all earned second-team honors. Hein, who graduated in May, earned her third-consecutive second-team honor with a 3.47 GPA in communications at Arizona State. Sophomore Nicole Smith and senior Ashlee Brown earned honorable mention accolades. 

In May, the NCAA recognized the Arizona State women's tennis team for their continued commitment to academic excellence, recording a perfect 1000 score on the NCAA's Annual Progress Rate (APR) in the six years the measurement has been in existence.
