GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 24, 2013) – Oklahoma Christian’s men’s tennis team has earned Scholar Team status from the National Christian College Athletic Association.

The NCCAA announced its honor list on Monday. To qualify for the honor, team members had to post a combined grade-point average of at least 3.4 on a 4.0 scale. The Eagles had a team GPA of 3.45.

Members of OC’s men’s tennis team this spring included Nicolas Auruccio, Martin Poboril, Julio Pulido, Paulo Roessle, Jaime Sanchez-Canamares, Josip Smoljan and Bruno Tiberti. Sanchez-Canamares and Pulido each posted a 4.0 GPA during the spring semester.

The Eagles went 9-2 this season.

Only 48 teams nationally from the winter and spring sports seasons qualified for the NCCAA honor. Four of those were softball teams and OC ranked third among that group.

Besides the men’s team, OC’s softball team also received NCCAA Scholar Team status with a 3.43 GPA. OC’s women’s cross country team previously received Scholar Team status after its fall season, posting a 3.53 GPA.
