WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – For the eighth-straight season, the Monmouth University women’s tennis team has been lauded with the NCAA Public Recognition Award, highlighting the program’s exceptional academic performance. The tennis squad is one of two Northeast Conference teams and one of only 61 institutions across the nation which have been honored in each of the last eight seasons.

"I am honored and proud that the women's tennis team has been recognized with this prestigious award,” stated head coach Patrice Murray, who has been at the helm for the past 28 seasons. “The NCAA Public Recognition Award is a testament to the type of student-athlete we have on the tennis team and at Monmouth University.”

Every Division I sports team calculates its Academic Progress Rate (APR) each academic year, based on the eligibility, graduation and retention of each scholarship student-athlete. Rates are based on the past four years’ performance.

Murray added, “Monmouth's administration sets the parameters and provides the guidance and structure for all of our student-athletes to strive to be the best they can be. Successful academic progress is a top priority at Monmouth."

In the 2012-13 academic year, six tennis athletes were added to the Monmouth Dean’s List, including Dana Ferrari (Saddle Brook, N.J./Immaculate Heart) and Sarah Turner (Alexandria, Va./Thomas A. Edison), who each posted a 4.0 GPA this past spring, while Alyssa Teehan (Red Bank, N.J./Middletown South) joined Ferrari on the Chi Alpha Sigma National Athlete Honor Society.
