Baylor Women’s Tennis Has Four Earn ITA Scholar-Athlete Status

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Baylor women's tennis team was named an ITA All-Academic team and had four players honored as ITA Scholar Athletes, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced Thursday.

For the seventh time in the last eight years, BU earned the team recognition by having a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above.

Meanwhile, student-athletes Kely Putri, Blair Shankle, Karina Traxler and Hadley Young held a grade point average of 3.50 for the current academic year to secure the Scholar Athlete title. It is third-straight year Shankle has been recognized, while Putri secured her second consecutive honor.

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must also be a varsity letter winner, and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.

As announced last month, Shankle was one of 39 BU student-athletes to have a 4.0 GPA for the spring semester. Meanwhile, the women's team placed four representatives on the Baylor Dean's List and nine on the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll.
