SKILLMAN, N.J. - A pair of University of Colorado tennis student-athletes were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athletes, the governing body of collegiate tennis announced.

May 2014 graduate Carla Manzi Tenorio and junior Julyette Steur were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for the second time in their collegiate careers. The ITA honor is equivalent to being called Academic All-American.

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 thorough senior year).

This past May, Manzi Tenorio and Steur were both named to the All-Pac-12 Conference All-Academic second team. Manzi Tenorio has earned the conference honor three times, while Steur is a two-time recipient.

Manzi Tenorio earned a degree in chemical engineering and was named to CU’s 4.0 Club this past May. She was named the team's Academic MVP (highest grade point average) during her freshman year in 2010-11, and was named ITA Scholar-Athlete later that season.

Steur, a second semester junior this upcoming fall season, is majoring in business, was recently named the team’s G.P.A. winner for the second consecutive year. A three-year letterwinner, Steur was recently named the ITA Mountain Region player To Watch for the 2014-15 season. She has now earned back-to-back ITA Scholar-Athlete honors (2012-13 and 2013-14).

It’s also the 23rd and 24th time a CU women’s player was named ITA Scholar-Athlete under the 16-year tutelage of head coach Nicole Kenneally.

Manzi Tenorio and Steur join three other CU women’s tennis student-athletes named ITA Scholar-Athlete multiple times. Michala Hedelund Jensen (2009-10, 2010-11); Gleisy Torres Torres (2006-07, 2007-08); and Morgan Sall (2002-03, 2003-04).

All ITA Scholar-Athletes receive a certificate to recognize the achievement.

As the governing body of collegiate tennis, the ITA promotes both the athletic and academic achievements of varsity collegiate tennis players. The ITA, which is comprised of nearly 1,700 men's and women's varsity coaches and 20,000 student-athletes from over 1,200 institutions, has a comprehensive awards program for players and coaches to honor excellence in academics, leadership, sportsmanship and athletic performance.

The ITA annually recognizes over 3,000 student-athletes on an individual and team basis from over 500 different varsity tennis programs. For more information on the ITA Awards program, please visit www.itatennis.com.
