Men’s Tennis’ Tverijonas and Behun Grab ITA Scholar-Athlete Honors
Pair leads team in the classroom
TEMPE, Ariz. – George Washington men’s tennis’s rising sophomore Jakub Behun and recent graduate Julius Tverijonas achieved Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Scholar-Athlete status, the organization announced on Tuesday.
To earn a spot on the ITA Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll, a student-athlete must have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 of greater. The ITA honored 1,521 student athletes from 302 different institutions at the Division I level.
Tverijonas earned his third career ITA Scholar-Athlete distinction after posting a strong 2016-17 season in the classroom – landing on the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team, being recognized to both the Fall 2016 GW Athletics Academic Dean’s List and A-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll, and being named a 2017 Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar. The 2017 graduate led GW with an overall 27-9 singles record, with a 15-5 mark in the spring while playing exclusively at the top spot. The Siauliai, Lithuania, native broke into the ITA national singles rankings on Feb. 22 at No. 118 and posted a team best 22-8 doubles record.
In his rookie campaign, Behun posted a 7-5 doubles record after joining the Colonials in the spring semester. The finance major earned all but one decision at the No. 3 doubles spot and notched a doubles win in the A-10 Championship semifinals against VCU.
