TEMPE, Ariz. – Denison men's tennis was recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) this past week for their successes on the tennis court and in the classroom as four student-athletes were named ITA Scholar-Athletes. Additionally, the men's tennis program was honored as one of the ITA's All-Academic Teams for the third-straight year after compiling a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.20 or better.

Senior Kevin Brown rounded out his DU career as a four-time ITA Scholar-Athlete while junior Julian Janczak received the honor for the third-straight season. Sophomore Mitchell Thai returned as a Scholar-Athlete after accepting the award as a freshman and first-year Tim Cianciola closed out the Big Red accolades as a first-time recipient.
