HOUSTON - The University of Houston Women's Tennis team continued its tradition of academic excellence by recently posting a fall semester grade-point average (GPA) of 3.6, which set a new program record and ranks as the highest among all Cougar sports programs.

With the outstanding effort in the classroom during the fall semester, the Cougars raised their cumulative GPA to 3.47, which also ranks as a program best and leads all other sports at Houston.

"Our team's continued outstanding academic achievement is one of the things I deserve the least amount of credit for, but am the most proud of," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "I'm very fortunate to coach a team of brilliant and dedicated student-athletes who receive outstanding support from our advisor Helen Gore-Laird, Maria Peden and all of the folks at the academic center. [Assistant coach] Jo Keene also deserves mention here, as she handles all things academic for our squad and rules that area with an iron fist. Congratulations to the team, and especially to Bryony and Josephine, who despite facing challenging semesters personally, showed a lot of resolve by making straight A's."

Two-thirds of the Cougars earned Dean's List honors during the fall semester, including senior Bryony Hunter and junior Jo Garvey, who posted perfect 4.0 GPA's.

The Houston Tennis program is synonymous with academic excellence, earning the NCAA Public Recognition award over the summer, which was awarded to squads whose scores ranked in the top 10 percent of their sports based on APR (Academic Progress Report) scores over the last four years, while also notching ITA Academic All-America team honors (3.5+ GPA) the last two semesters.
