TEMPE, Ariz.— Four members of the Boise State men’s tennis team have been named 2017 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athletes for their performance in the classroom this past academic year. The foursome includes 2016-17 sophomores Pedro Platzeck and Greg Wischer, as well as freshmen Ryland McDermott and Brian Tran.

“I’m so dang happy that over half my team were named ITA Scholar-Athletes,” said head coach Greg Patton. “We had a lot of our guys achieve in the classroom this year, and you know what, it is all part of the foundation of this program. Our team is going to be great because we have good guys, great guys, smart guys that achieve at whatever they set their minds to.”

In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a student-athlete must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least 2 semesters (including freshman through senior year).

Earlier this month Platzeck, Tran and Wischer were also named to the Academic All-Mountain West Team, McDermott just missed the number of required competitions to qualify. In addition, McDermott, Tran and Wischer were named Mountain West Scholar-Athletes for maintaining an accumulative GPA of 3.5 or better.
