The University of New Mexico women's tennis recorded the highest G.P.A of all 21 sports programs for the second year in a row. The Lobos finished the spring semester with a 3.63. The women's tennis team has had a G.P.A of a 3.05 or higher for the last 37 straight semesters.
"It is a great accomplishment for our team to achieve such a high academic standard being that they are so young," head coach Roy Cañada said. "The discipline these student athletes have shown this past year will pay very high dividends in everything they set their minds to do"
Several members of the women's tennis team were recognized at the UNM Scholar Athletes Banquet in early May. The occasion honored those students who have a 3.2 GPA or above. Junior Ashley Bonner, sophomores Eliane Bourdages and Manumea Durie and freshman Kristin Eggleston, Michaela Oldani, Laura Richardson and Amy Shipperd represented the women's tennis team. Shipperd, Durie and Bourdages all achieved a 4.0 or better.
