ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF women's tennis continues to have a strong summer in 2011, and it got even better this week. The Knights were named an Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Team, while four student-athletes were recognized as ITA Scholar-Athletes.

UCF tied with Florida for the most ITA Scholar-Athletes of any Division I schools in the Sunshine State. Representing UCF was: senior Taylor Dubins, juniors Jenna Doerfler and Allison Hodges and sophomore Courtney Griffith.

The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20 or above. In order to receive an ITA Scholar-Athlete accolade, a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letterwinner, have a GPA of at least 3.50 and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.

Earlier in July, Doerfler claimed the singles title at the ITA Summer Circuit event in Tallahassee July 8-10, while Griffith grabbed the singles backdraw crown July 15-17 in Athens, Ga.
