CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women’s tennis program has earned 2021-22 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Team honors and established a program record with 14 ITA Scholar-Athletes, the ITA announced on Monday.
For the 14th consecutive season, and 22nd time overall, the Crimson collected the ITA team award. In order to secure ITA All-Academic Team accolades, a program must have a team grade point average of 3.2 or above on a 4.0 scale.
Harvard for the fourth time in as many seasons established a school record for number of ITA Scholar-Athletes. In 2018-19, the Crimson set the mark with 11 honorees and then broke the record 12 months later when 12 were listed on the Scholar-Athlete list. The last two seasons, Harvard increased its total by one year-over-year, bringing its ’21-22 total to 14, which was the second-highest total in the nation (Columbia – 16).
This year’s ITA Scholar-Athletes included Rachel Arbitman, Annika Bassey, Maxi Duncan, Rachel Eason, Holly Fischer, Sophia Ho, Amy Huang, Kayla Leschly, Rachel Lim, Mihaela Marculescu, Demi Snyder, Chelsea Williams, Lauryn Wu and Angel You. In order to be eligible for this distinction, student-athletes needed a grade point average of at least 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) for the 2021-22 academic year.
