BOISE, Idaho - Boise State's women's tennis team continues to rake in the academic honors for this past year. The most recent recognition came this afternoon from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) as the Broncos received a team academic award. In addition to having four members of the squad recognized individually in Kaitlyn Brown, Anissa Bryant-Swift, Megan LaLone and Bobbi Oshiro.
The Broncos received the team award for averaging above a 3.2 grade point average as a group, the team combined for a 3.375 GPA. Boise State was one of six Mountain West schools honored as a team by the ITA.
The four individuals honored as ITA Scholar-Athletes include: senior Anissa Bryant-Swift (3.719), junior Kaitlyn Brown (3.848), and sophomores Megan LaLone (3.825) and Bobbi Oshiro (3.844). The four were among 30 MW athletes honored by the ITA.
In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letter winner, have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman thorough senior year).
Each of the four Broncos were honored earlier this week by the MW as Mountain West Scholar-Athletes for maintaining GPAs above 3.5.
Sandy Vo, Bryant-Swift, LaLone and Morgan Basil were each named Academic All-MW for this past year as well.
