The Ohio State women’s tennis team was named an Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic Team for the fourth consecutive year and the No. 11 time in program history.

A team must have a cumulative team grade-point average (GPA)of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale) to win the award. All varsity letterwinners are factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year.

Kolie Allen, Irina Cantos Siemers, Luna Dormet, Mary Beth Hurley and Danielle Wolf were also named ITA Scholar-Athletes in addition to the team honor. 

A student-athlete must have posted a 3.5 GPA or higher for the current academic year and be listed on the institutional eligibility form to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete accolades.

Hurley and Wolf became three-time ITA Scholar-Athlete honorees. Hurley is a rising senior and health science major, while Wolf graduated with a degree in communications in the spring. 

Dormet and Allen were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for the second time as Buckeyes. Dormet is a rising junior studying speech and hearing science, while Allen is rising senior studying political science.

Cantos Siemers, a rising sophomore, is a communication major who earned the honor in her first year for Ohio State.

Each of the five Buckeye women’s tennis student-athletes to earn ITA accolades also earned Ohio State Scholar-Athlete honors in 2020, with Allen, Dormet, Hurley and Wolf named to the Academic All-Big Ten team. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold is a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for a student’s academic career.

Hurley and Dormet were also recognized as Big Ten Distinguished Scholars. Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must have earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition in the previous academic year, must have been enrolled full time at the institution for the entire previous academic year (two semesters) and earned a minimum GPA of 3.70 or higher during the previous academic year, excluding any summer grades.
