Six players from the Pepperdine men and women’s tennis teams were recognized for their success on the court and the classroom this year, the West Coast Conference announced on Friday.

To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his or her team.

 From men’s tennis, Tim Zeitvogel, who was one of only two athletes that earned a 4.0 GPA on the list, and Daniel De Jonge were named to the first team while Enrique Luque Rico was chosen as an honorable mention.

 Zeitvogel posted a 4.0 GPA in Mathematics, as De Jonge earned a 3.78 in Economics. Luque Rico recorded a 3.57 in Computer Science and Mathematics.

On the women’s side, Ashley Lahey was given first team honors as Anastasia Iamachkine and Jessica Failla were named honorable mentions.

Lahey clocked in on the list for the third time in her career, as freshmen are not eligible for the honor. She earned a 3.955 in Sports Medicine, where Iamachkine posted a 3.22 in Marketing Communications and Failla recorded a 3.33 in a Masters of Dispute Resolution.
