April 16, 2013

HOUSTON - University of Houston junior Celia Fraser was one of only five women's tennis student-athletes named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team, the league office announced Tuesday.

Fraser sports a 3.91 GPA in finance and was named an ITA Scholar Athlete in 2012 and is also a two-time C-USA Academic Medal recipient, which recognizes student-athletes who achieve a 3.75 GPA or higher.

"Celia is the consummate student-athlete and a wonderful representative of both our program and of the University in all aspects of her life," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "She has made a much stronger commitment to tennis this year and taken her game to a higher level while not compromising a nearly perfect GPA in a very tough major. I am extremely proud of her and thankful to have her on our squad."

The Birmingham, U.K., native has compiled a combined record of 25-9 this spring in dual play, highlighted by a 15-2 mark in doubles action with partner Maja Kazimieruk, where the duo has reeled off 13-consecutive victories, including wins over opponents from No. 33 TCU and No. 44 William & Mary.

Fraser also enters C-USA Championship play riding a three-game winning streak in singles action and has won six of her last seven matches for a 10-7 record at the No. 2 position. Fraser claimed a set from No. 79 Olivia Smith of TCU before the match was called early in the final set and also posted wins over opponents from 44th-ranked William & Mary and No. 59 Stephen F. Austin.

Fraser and the Cougars return to action on Thursday to host the 2013 C-USA Women's Tennis Championship beginning at 8 a.m., at John E. Hoff Courts. Houston earned the No. 10 seed and will face No. 7 Marshall in the first round at noon on Thursday.
