TEMPE, Ariz. - Both the Hood College men's and women's tennis teams earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association Academic Team awards, while eight Blazers were named ITA Scholar Athletes.
Both the men's and women's teams placed four Blazers on the ITA Scholar Athlete list. Alex Sexton is the only repeat recipient from Hood. He has earned the honor for the third straight year.
