SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's tennis team placed four players on the West Coast Conference All-Academic team, announced on Monday. Senior Juliette Coupez (Lesquin, France), junior Laura Claus (Wiesbaden, Germany) and sophomore Anna Depenau (Geilenkirchen, Germany) were each named first-team all-academic, while junior Cara Brown (South Bend, Ind.) earned honorable mention recognition.
This was the third time Coupez has earned WCC All-Academic distinction, while Claus took home the honor for the second-straight year and Depenau garnered her first-career all-academic award.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects 12 individuals to the all-academic squad to mirror the all-conference men's tennis team. To be nominated, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average based on the most recently completed term at the time of nomination, be at least a sophomore in both academic and athletic standing, and prove to be a significant contributor to his team.
