June 23, 2015
FORT WORTH, Texas (June 23, 2015) – TCU women’s tennis student-athlete Stefanie Tan added to her long list of academic accolades by being named the 2015 Big 12 Women’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year as announced by the conference office on Tuesday afternoon.
A three-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team member, Tan graduated with a 3.81 GPA this spring, earning her Master’s of Business Administration from TCU. She collected All-Big 12 honors in singles and doubles play in 2015, posting a 5-0 mark in singles action and a 7-1 record in doubles. She was also a 2014 Capital One Academic All-District Women’s At-Large Team member.
A 2013 ITA Singles All-America honoree, Tan wrapped up her career at TCU this past spring with a combined overall record of 142-66. The Singapore native put together 89 wins in singles action during her four years, which ranks eighth all-time in the TCU record book. Tan finished her final season with an ITA singles ranking of No. 97 and a doubles ranking of No. 22 with teammate Seda Arantekin.
The Big 12 Conference established its Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award in 2012-13. A Scholar-Athlete of the Year is named in each of the Conference’s sponsored sports. Each Big 12 institution nominates one individual per sport with the winners selected by a vote of the league’s head coaches for that sport, who are not allowed to vote for their own student-athletes.
Scholar-Athlete of the Year nomination criteria includes: must be a junior or senior (athletic and academic standing), have a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or higher, participation in at least 60 percent of the team’s scheduled contests and a minimum of one year in residence at the institution.
