Not long after news that IPFW had intelligent golfers, word came down that the Mastodons' tennis players also did well academically.
For the seventh time in the last eight years, the IPFW women's tennis team received the ITA All-Academic Team award, which is significant because teams with a cumulative 3.20 grade point average only receive the honor.
Four of the women players own GPAs of 3.50 or better. They are Ingrid Ballus, Alex Forsyth, Rafaela Hadba and Yuka Kobayashi. Four men's tennis players also were recognized for outstanding GPAs. They are Luis Maselli, Luis Sanado, Junya Saruta and Eduardo Sztrajtman.
