TALLAHASSEE, FL. – The Florida State women’s tennis team has been named an All-Academic team for 2002 by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. The Seminoles were one of 70 Division I women’s tennis programs to receive this honor. FSU is led by head coach Lise Gregory, who is entering her seventh season with a career record of 88-64. Elizabeth Lawrence and Alida Gallovits were recognized individually as scholar athletes for their outstanding work in the classroom.

Xavier Luscan of the men’s team was also named as an ITA scholar athlete. Xavier teamed with Rodrigo Laub to win the ACC doubles title in 2002 for the first time in school history.

The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or higher (on a 4.00 scale). All eligible student athletes have competed in one or more matches and are averaged into the cumulative grade point average. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status at the NCAA level a player must be a junior or senior in school, be a varsity letterwinner, and have a grade point average of 3.50.
