July 31, 2002

CLEMSON, SC – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced Wednesday that the Clemson women’s tennis team was named an ITA All-Academic Team for the 2002 season. The ITA All-Academic Team award is open to any ITA program that has a cumulative team grade point average of 3.20 or above (on a 4.00 scale). All eligible student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA eligibility form and have competed in one or more matches are averaged into the cumulative grade point average. The Tigers earned the honor by accumulating a 3.31 team grade point average for the academic year. This is the first time that the team has earned the honor under head coach Nancy Harris.

Clemson’s Sunnie Harmon, Milena Stanoycheva and Ana Stiglic were individually named Division I ITA Scholar Athletes for the 2002 season. This honor is awarded to junior or senior letterwinners who have a grade point average of 3.50 or higher. Four women’s tennis players have earned this honor during Harris’ career at Clemson.

Stanoycheva was named to the 2001-02 ACC Honor Roll with a 3.59 grade point average and has been on Clemson’s Dean’s List for the past three semesters. She was a member of the 2001-02 All-ACC team and earned ACC Flight Championship honors at number six singles. She completed her senior season with a 16-9 record in dual matches and an 8-0 record against ACC competition. Prior to attending Clemson, Stanoycheva won the 1999-2000 Junior College National Championship.

Harmon, a rising senior, saw limited action during the 2002 season, but has compiled a 3.56 cumulative grade point average in the classroom. She has been named to the ACC Honor Roll for three consecutive years and has been a member of the Dean’s List or Honor Roll each of her six semesters at Clemson.

Stiglic was named to the 2000-01 and 2001-02 ACC Academic Honor Rolls with her 3.64 cumulative grade point average. During her three years at Clemson she has been on the President’s List two times, the Dean’s List two times and the Honor Roll once. Stiglic is currently 28-18 in dual matches in her career as a Tiger, posting 11 wins during the 2002 season.
