ITA Scholar-Athletes

STANFORD, Calif. – Excelling in the classroom and on the court, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced 24 Stanford tennis players have been named ITA Scholar-Athletes. Nine athletes qualified from the women's team, while the men's team added 15. Both programs were selected as ITA All-Academic Teams.

In order to qualify for the honor, athletes needed to maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher during the current academic year. To be named an ITA All-Academic Team, the programs needed to have a 3.2 grade point average or higher.

The men's team finished the 2021 season as Pac-12 champions in men's tennis for the first time since 2015, while the title was the program's first in outright fashion since 2003. The Cardinal went 11-6 on the season with a 6-1 mark in Pac-12 play, and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Cardinal women finished 15-5 overall and 8-2 in Pac-12 play during its 2021 campaign, representing perhaps the most unprecedented season in school history both on and off the court. Stanford was unable to defend its NCAA and Pac-12 championships, resulting in a rare early postseason exit. The two-time defending NCAA champion Cardinal was eliminated by host Pepperdine in the second round, signaling its quickest postseason exit since the field was expanded to 64 teams.
