Tempe, Ariz. – Lynn University’s women’s tennis team has been honored as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Team for the 2018-19 season while eight Fighting Knights were selected as ITA Scholar-Athletes.

Federica Mordegan, Eliska Petrackova, Anastacia Parkin and Eleonora Liga all earned their second consecutive Scholar-Athlete plaudits while Giorgia Pigato, Mayanka Rana, Natalia Siedliska and Ulyana Grib all claim their first accolades.
