SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State tennis players Marek Marksoo and Oliver Andersen were both recipients of ITA Scholar-Athlete honors, it was announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
To receive ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a letterwinner, have a grade point average of at least 3.50 for the 2013-14 academic year, and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
For Marksoo, it marked the second consecutive year he earned the academic honor. The junior from Tallinn, Estonia, was limited to 13 matches during the spring because of a knee injury and posted a 7-6 singles record including 3-0 in Big Sky Conference matches.
Marksoo posted a 4-4 record at No. 1, 2-1 at No. 2, and 1-1 at No. 3 in the team's lineup. The geology major missed nine straight matches with the injury before returning to play in the Big Sky Tournament where he went 1-1 at the No. 3 spot. Marksoo's three-year career singles record at Sacramento State is 40-12.
Andersen, a junior from Copenhagen, Denmark, played in his first season with the Hornets where he posted a 10-14 dual singles record, including a 6-3 mark against Big Sky competition. A psychology major, Andersen dropped his final four matches of the season, but three of those losses were played with a sprained ankle. Prior to the injury, he had won eight of 11 singles matches.
