Eight members of the Wesleyan University men's tennis team were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athletes, while the team earned ITA All-Academic Team praise with its cumulative grade point average of 3.55.
Receiving individual honors for their academic work included rising juniors Andrew Finkelman, Ali Mooraj, Adrian Roji and Marcus Sweeney, along with rising sophomores Max Lee, Zach Lieb and Noah Lilienthal.
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). Scholar-Athlete status is awarded to those that have completed at least two collegiate semesters and maintained a GPA of at least 3.5 during the academic year.
The men's tennis team had a historic season, setting a program record with 16 wins while qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the second time in school history. Three players qualified for the NCAA Individual Championship, as doubles duo Lilienthal and Roji finished as runner-up in the NCAA Doubles Championship, as the program's best finish by a doubles tandem earned them All-American honors. Finkelman also earned All-American honors (singles), while Lilienthal was named ITA Rookie of the Year.
