ITA Release

ORLANDO, Fla. – The UCF men's tennis team has been named an ITA All-Academic Team for the fourth 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 honored as an ITA All-Academic Team seven times over the last decade and a total of 11 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.

Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi, Vasyl Kiselyov, and Kento Yamada 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.
