The Hamilton College women's tennis team and three of its student-athletes were recognized for academic excellence on Wednesday, July 29 when the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced its 2020 Division III ITA Scholar-Athletes and All-Academic Teams.

ITA scholar-athletes must have a grade point average of 3.5 or better for the current academic year. To be named an all-academic team, all varsity letter winners are factored into the cumulative team grade point average for the current academic year and the team GPA must be 3.2 or better.

Sarah Bargamian '22 (Wayland, Mass./The Rivers School), Lauren Holtzman '23 (Berkeley Heights, N.J./Newark Academy) and Eleanor Struthers '22 (West Hartford, Conn./Loomis Chaffee School) are Hamilton's three women's ITA scholar-athletes. Bargamian and Struthers are on the list for the second time. Struthers also earned a spot on the 2020 NESCAC Spring All-Academic Team.

The Continentals -- led by Head Coach Matt Brisotti -- picked up an ITA all-academic team award for the sixth straight year. The Hamilton women won both of their dual matches in 2019-20, and the pairing of Kat Roberts '22 and Holtzman advanced to the quarterfinals of the doubles bracket draw at the 2019 ITA Division III Women's Northeast Regional Championship in September.
