CORAL GABLES, Fla. The University of Miami women’s tennis team garnered multiple academic distinctions from the ITA, as announced Monday morning.

For the ninth time in the last 10 years, including the eighth in a row, the Hurricanes received ITA Academic Team plaudits. The honor goes to all teams with a combined cumulative GPA of at least 3.2 for the academic year. Miami posted a splendid 3.618 mark in 2021-22.

In addition, five Hurricanes picked up ITA Scholar-Athlete designation: Daevenia Achong, Audrey Boch-Collins, Diana Khodan, Isabella Pfennig and Eden Richardson. The recognition goes to student-athletes with at least a 3.5 GPA for the academic year.

A finance major who graduated from Miami in May, Achong tallied a 3.625 GPA this year. The fourth-year junior from Geleen, Netherlands, is a three-time member of the ACC Honor Roll, making the cut in each year she was eligible.
