CLEMSON, SC – Clemson women’s tennis player Kathi Gerber has been named an ITA Scholar Athlete for the 2005-06 school year. Gerber, a sophomore from Vienna, WV, won 13 singles matches for the 18th-ranked Tigers, including a 6-0, 6-1 decision in Clemson’s 4-0 victory over Siena in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Gerber, who is majoring in biological sciences, is the ninth honoree in program history, with all coming under current head coach Nancy Harris’ tenure.
