Five Seminoles Named ITA Scholar-Athletes

Tallahassee – Five Florida State men’s tennis players were named Scholar-Athletes, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced on Friday. The five players to make the team are the most in one season for the Noles, surpassing four from 2015.

Rising seniors Jake Albo and Parker Evertsen each made the team for the first time, as did Benjamin Lock, who graduated in April. It was the second consecutive year that Marco Nunez and Michael Rinaldi made the team. Rinaldi graduated in April, while Nunez will return to FSU to complete his finance degree in the fall.

“It’s great to see our guys succeeding in the classroom,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Our guys have taken on challenging majors and have put a priority in being good both on and off the court.”

To be eligible to be named an ITA Scholar-Athlete, a player must: 1) be a varsity letter winner, 2) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 for the current academic year, and 3) have been enrolled at their current school for at least two semesters.
