Georgia Tech men’s tennis players Zummy Bauer and Andrew Li were named 2018 Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athletes, as announced by the organization Tuesday morning.
Li, a junior from Hong Kong majoring in business administration, saw time at positions two through six for the Yellow Jackets this spring, compiling an 8-13 overall record, 4-7 in ACC play, and went 11-14 as a doubles player. He won his last three matches to help the Yellow jackets reach the ACC Tournament quarterfinals for the fourth straight year. Bauer, a highly-rated recruit from Suwanee, Ga., redshirted last year.
In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a grade point average of at least 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year).
