Skillman, N.J. – Georgia Tech graduating senior Eduardo Segura was named a national Scholar-Athlete by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association on Thursday.
It is the third academic honor for Segura, who earlier this summer was named to the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic team for men’s tennis, and to the ACC Academic Honor Roll, which covers all sports.
The senior from Madrid, Spain graduated May 2 with honors and a 3.7 grade-point average in business administration. Segura enjoyed his finest season on the courts as well, winning a team-high 29 singles matches and joining with sophomore Spaniard Carlos Benito to become one of the nation’s top-ranked doubles teams, posting a 19-13 mark as the Yellow Jackets’ top duo. 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 2 semesters (including freshman thorough senior year).
