Rock women's tennis trio earns ITA Scholar-Athlete honors

SKILLMAN, N.J. – Three members of the 2012-13 Slippery Rock University women’s tennis team were named Tuesday as recipients of Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athlete honors.

The Rock’s ITA Scholar-Athlete honorees were senior Janelle Krantz (Quarryville/Solanco H.S.) and juniors Samantha Bruggeman (Bethel Park/Bethel Park H.S.) and Lauren Coggins (Canton, Ohio/Central Catholic H.S.).

In addition, The Rock squad coached by Matt Meredith earned ITA All-Academic Team honors.

To qualify for ITA Scholar-Athlete honors, a student-athlete must be a varsity letter winner, have a minimum grade point average of 3.50 on a 4.00 scale and have attended their institution for at least two semesters.

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 for all eligible student-athletes who competed in one or more varsity matches during the academic year.

The Rock, who earned the team honor for the third consecutive season and sixth time in the last eight seasons, were one of only four Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference teams to earn ITA All-Academic Team honors in 2013.

Prior to earning their ITA Scholar-Athlete honors, Krantz, Bruggeman and Coggins also received PSAC Scholar-Athlete and Division II Athletic Directors Association Academic Achievement awards.
