New Haven, CT - For the second year in a row the Yale men's tennis team led the nation (all divisions, NAIA, and junior college) in Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athletes with nine. The women's team had five honorees, and both teams won the All-Academic Team award for having a GPA of over 3.2.
The men's honorees were Andrew Arons (Dix Hills, NY), Matt Feldman (Hewlett, NY), David Goldman (Miami, FL), Milosz Gudzowski (Houston, TX), Chris Lawler (Greenwich, CT), Johnny Lu (Louisville, KY), Andrew Rosenfeld (Beverly Hills, CA), Neil Tolaney (Arcadia, CA) and William Vidal (Guaynabo, PR). Arons, Feldman, Goldman, Gudzowski, Lu, Rosenfeld and Tolaney were all honored in 2003 as well.
The women's honorees were Aimee Kim (Irvine, CA), Ashley Martin (Barrington, IL), Karlyn Martin (Barrington, IL), Reshmi Srinath (Farmington, CT) and Stephanie White (Jamaica Plain, MA). It was the second year in a row of honors for both Martins along with Srinath and White.
