FUS men's tennis team honored
STEUBENVILLE - The Franciscan University of Steubenville men's tennis team won the AMCC Peak Performance award for the second year in a row. The Peak Performance award is an academic honor given to the AMCC to the team with the top cumulative GPA in its respective sport.
The Barons finished the season with a team cumulative GPA of 3.51, nearly .2 points better than last year. Nine of the Barons 10 players made the 2012-2013 academic all-Conference team.
"We couldn't have been blessed with a better group of guys," head coach Jeremy Ellis said. "Not only do they support each other on the court, but at school and any other avenue."
The Barons became the first FUS?team to win an NCAA tournament match last month.
"A lot of times, a coach only hears about the academics of his athletes when they're in trouble, but winning an award like this shows that we don't have to worry about that," said Ellis. "The character and effort and desire of this team to do well is there both on and off the court.
"It was a great season," Ellis said. "I'm excited to see what both the students and God will do next year."
