Mamedov named ITA Scholar Athlete

Rising Senior Dmytro Mamedov was named ITA Scholar Athlete by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association for his accomplishments in the classroom during the 2011/2012 school year.

“Congratulations to Dima for his academic success,” head coach FD Robbins said. “He has done a great job in the classroom, as well as on the tennis court and we look for more great things from him this year.”

The Ukranian national becomes the 17th Ute player in history to earn the award. In order to achieve ITA Scholar Athlete status a student-athlete must be a varsity letter winner, enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters, have a GPA of 3.5 or higher (on a 4.0 scale).

Mamedov, who majors in Parks, Recreation and Tourism, earned a 3.53 GPA in the 2011/2012 school year. Earlier in the year, the Pac-12 honored him as a Second Team All-Conference Academic selection.

Besides a successful academic year, Mamedov also had a successful season on the tennis court, finishing ranked No. 89 on the ITA national rankings with a 21-11 (4-4 Pac-12) singles record.
