SKILLMAN, N.J. - The Haverford College men's tennis team was recognized as a 2012 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III All-Academic Team as announced by the organization. Nine individual members of the squad were also named ITA Scholar-Athletes.
To be eligible for the team award a squad must possess a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.20 or better. Individual honorees must be a letter winner and have earned a GPA of 3.50 or higher.
Haverford, one of 47 Division III men's teams honored overall, was just one of two Centennial Conference institutions to receive the all-academic recognition. This marks the 11th consecutive year the Fords have attained the award.
Seniors Will Garrett and Natty Sergay completed the noteworthy accomplishment of receiving the scholar-athlete distinction for every year of their careers while juniors Matthew Cebul and Jacob Weisenthal earned accolades for the third straight year.
The Fords went 11-8 in 2012 and captured a spot in the Centennial championship tournament for the sixth time in the past seven seasons. Faced with an opening-round road contest at fourth-seeded Washington College, the Fords, seeded fifth, rolled to a 5-1 victory on April 25 which avenged a 5-4 regular-season loss to the Shoremen.
