PULLMAN, Wash. - Three Washington State tennis players were named Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athlete All Americans for 2000, including Melissa Pine who earned the honor for the second straight year.
The award goes to a player who is a junior or senior, a varsity letterwinner and at a grade point average of 3.50 or higher on a 4.00 scale.
Pine, who finished her career at WSU with 64 singles wins, third best in Cougar history, posted a 3.72 cumulative GPA in international business.
The 47 career singles wins for van de Ven are tied for 10th all-time at WSU. She has a 3.66 cumulative GPA in philosophy.
Perkins, who missed most of last season with an injury, has 44 career singles wins and a 3.93 cumulative GPA in history.
Only three other WSU women's tennis players have earned this award, and 2000 marked the first time three players received the accolade in the same year.
