Women’s Tennis Receives ITA Academic Honors

This marks the 12th year in the last 13 that the team has been recognized by ITA.

BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State women's tennis team and three of its student-athletes have been honored for academic success during the 2017-18 school year by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). The Bronco team was recognized as an ITA All-Academic Team for the 12th time in the last 13 years, while Jovana Kuljanin, Wilhelmina Palmer and Lilian Poling were all named ITA Scholar-Athletes. 

Boise State was one of nine Mountain West schools recognized by the ITA for the team honor. The nine schools combined for a total of 40 individual accolades. In all, 735 teams and 4,328 student-athletes (men and women) across all five divisions of college tennis were honored.

As a team, Boise State recorded a 3.23 team GPA for 2017-18, while all three Broncos honored, Kuljanin, Palmer and Poling, recorded 3.5 or better GPAs.

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).

Earlier this year, the Boise State women's tennis team was publicly recognized by the NCAA for ranking in the top-10 percent for multi-year Academic Progress Rates among all Division I women's tennis programs.
