Knights Named as an ITA All-Academic Team

ITA Release

ORLANDO, Fla. – The UCF men's tennis team has been named an ITA All-Academic Team for the third straight season, the longest streak in the program's history.

Since Director of Tennis John Roddick's arrival, the Knights have become consistent at excelling on the court and in the classroom. The Black and Gold have been named as an ITA All-Academic Team six times over the last decade and a total of 10 times since 1997. To be an ITA All-Academic Team, the entire roster must average a 3.2 GPA or better throughout the calendar year.

Mikhail Sokolovskiy, Bogdan Pavel and Vasyl Kiselyov were all named as ITA Scholar Athletes. To be named a scholar athlete, a student-athlete must finish the current academic year with a 3.5 GPA or higher.

The recent nomination makes Kiselyov a three-time ITA Scholar Athlete while Pavel and Sokolovskiy were awarded their second stint of the honor this year. The ITA released their list of All-Academic Teams and Scholar Athletes on Monday afternoon.
