Men’s Tennis Players Receive League Academic Award
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. –– Included among the 62 men’s tennis players who were named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for the sport that was announced by the league office on Thursday were eight members of the Navy program.
Men’s tennis players earned the laurel by having attained at least a 3.20 grade-point average during the 2017 spring semester.
Leading all men’s tennis players in the league was 2017 Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year Thomas Pecor (Houston, Texas). The 2017 Navy graduate who earned second-team all-league laurels as both a junior and senior compiled a 3.81 GPA as a systems engineering major and qualified for the academic honor roll for a third-straight year.
The Navy team also accounted for two of the five men’s tennis players in the league who posted a 4.00 GPA over the spring semester. Attaining the milestone for the Mids were Walker Sims (Memphis, Tenn.) and Ian Landwehr (Daleville, Ind.). Sims, a rising senior who was the 2016 men’s tennis scholar-athlete of the year in the league and appeared on the academic honor roll in both 2015 and ‘16, is majoring in history, while rising sophomore Landwehr will begin work toward a degree in mechanical engineering this fall.
Krishna Jana (Seabrook, Texas), Pecor’s classmate, made his second appearance (2016) on the academic honor roll with his 3.69 GPA as a systems engineering major over his last term on The Yard.
The remaining four Mids who were honored were making their first appearance on the academic honor roll. This foursome included rising senior Andrey Majkic (Jacksonville, Fla.), 3.84, economics; rising junior Seth McNair (McLean, Va.), 3.78, economics; and rising sophomores Greg Durham (Melbourne Beach, Fla.), 3.28; and Matthew Lee (San Diego, Calif.), 3.41. Durham will be majoring in mechanical engineering and Lee will be studying math.
