NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Carleton College 2011-12 men’s tennis team and two of its members were cited for academic excellence by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). The Knights are one of only two MIAC men’s programs recognized this season, and this is the ninth time since 2002 that Carleton has achieved All-Academic Team status.

Given to ITA programs with a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or higher, this award recognizes outstanding academic achievement during the 2011-12 season. The Knights are one of only 47 NCAA Division III men's tennis programs named a 2012 ITA All-Academic Team. Joining Carleton on the list this season was St. Olaf College.

Additionally, Ben Huang ’15 (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) and Nelson Wolf ’14 (So./Faribault, Minn./Shattuck-St. Mary's) were among the 11 MIAC male student-athletes chosen as ITA Scholar-Athletes. To be recognized as an individual award winner, players must be letter winners and have a grade point average of at least 3.50.

The Knights have received the team award nine times over the last 11 seasons, compared to 11 combined times by the other nine MIAC men’s programs over that same time period.
