March 2, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University women's tennis team has won the Adam Herbert Cup award for five consecutive semesters. The Hebert Cup is given to the IU athletic program with the highest team GPA.
"Ramiro (Azcui) and I are really proud of the team," said Head Coach Lin Loring after the fifth straight honor. "The team has different members each year, but we've been able to keep the streak going. We always stress academics and I think it really shows."
The Hoosiers compiled an overall team GPA of 3.59 during the fall semester. In spring of 2009, every single eligible Hoosier women's tennis player was named to the Academic All-Big Ten team (freshman are not eligible).
"The women's tennis team had another outstanding performance in the fall," said Assistant Athletic Director of Academic and Student Development Kelly Noonan. "Their commitment to the classroom is consistently reflected in IU, Big Ten and NCAA academic accolades. The ladies of the team pursue rewarding degree paths and challenge themselves through their coursework, internships and involvement on campus. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and representation of Indiana University."
The team will be recognized in front of a large IU crowd once again, this time the men's basketball game against Northwestern on Saturday, March. 6.
On the court, the Hoosiers are enjoying a strong start to their spring season. Indiana enters the weekend with a 10-2 record and is ranked No. 23 in the latest national rankings.
