Three members of the Gadsden State Community College Cardinal Tennis Team have received academic honors from the International Tennis Association. Alexander Boozer of Pell City, Charles Hannen of Enterprise and Joel Wester of Centre have been named 2017 ITA Scholar-Athletes for maintaining a 4.00 GPA during the year.
“We are so proud of our team – not only for their athletic achievements but for their academic excellence as well,” said Buster Stewart, Gadsden State’s tennis coach. “It’s not an easy task to juggle our tennis practices and matches with the demands of the classroom but our players have proven that they can do both – and do it well.”
To earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a varsity letter winner, have a 3.50 GPA for the current academic year and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
