BATON ROUGE – The LSU women’s tennis team was recognized both as a team and individually in the 2021 ITA Division I Women’s All-Academic Teams and Scholar-Athletes Awards, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced.

As a program, LSU was selected as one of the All-Academic Teams. To be eligible, the team must have had a grade point average above a 3.2, with the Tigers having finished the spring semester with a 3.45 GPA.

“We’re proud of these young women for their academic achievements,” co-head coach Michael Sell said. “Their hard work in their studies are rewarded with this honor as a team and also for those that individually were recognized.”

Individually, four players were recognized as an ITA Scholar-Athlete. Junior Nina Geissler was joined by teammates Samantha Buyckx, Eden Richardson, and Luba Vasilyuk as representatives for the Tigers. To be eligible, student-athletes must have maintained over a 3.5 GPA for the 2020-21 academic year.
