San Bruno, Calif. - Juniors Jan Macek and Bobby Rasmussen of the Santa Clara men's tennis team, along with junior Kim Daniel of the Santa Clara women's tennis team, were honored by the West Coast Conference for their performance in the classroom, as the trio were named to the All-WCC Spring Academic Team announced the league office earlier today. This is the second consecutive year that Rasmussen has been honored by the WCC for his academic prowess.
At the completion of each athletic season, the conference selects an all-academic squad for each of the participating sponsored sports. To be considered, a student-athlete must earn at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his or her team.
Graduating a year early this June with a degree in Finance, Macek sports a 3.57 G.P.A. The 2005 All-WCC First Team performer played the No. 1 position for Santa Clara the entire dual season and posted an overall record of 15-20, including a 5-4 mark in the WCC. In doubles, Macek and Rasmussen earned All-WCC Doubles Honorable Mention after occupying the No. 1 and 2 spots during the spring.
Rasmussen registers a 3.46 G.P.A. while working towards a degree in Accounting. He compiled an overall mark of 13-16 this season in singles and played mainly the No. 4 and 5 spots for Santa Clara. In doubles, Rasmussen and Macek reached the finals of the Santa Clara Broncos Classic and advanced to the Round of 16 at the Wilson/ITA Northwest Regional Championships during the fall season.
Daniel boasts an impressive 3.92 G.P.A. as an Accounting major at Santa Clara. This season, she held down the No. 3 and 4 positions for the Broncos and had an even record of 10-10 for the entire year. Daniel also posted a 6-6 mark in doubles, mainly teaming up with Myra Davoudi and Casey Knutson.
