TEMPE, Ariz. – Six members of the Dartmouth women’s tennis team were named to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athlete Team, as announced on Tuesday. The Big Green also received the team award.
Catherine Cable, Abigail Chiu, Jennifer Gadalov, Ashley Hess, Allison McCann and Jingyi Peng were among the 1,430 Division I female student-athletes who were named scholar athletes.
In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must meet the following criteria: be a varsity letter winner, have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale).
Dartmouth had a record of 6-5 during the early parts of the spring and had just defeated Boston University before the remainder of the season was canceled due to COVID-19.
