Cambridge, Mass. – University at Albany’s Kim Weltman has been named to the America East Conference All-Academic Tennis Team, as announced by the league office.

Weltman, who graduated last spring with an undergraduate degree in mathematics, is currently pursuing her master’s in secondary education with an emphasis in mathematics and carries a 4.00 grade point average in her graduate studies. Weltman posted a 16-8 single record in the No. 2 position and combined for a 19-8 record in doubles play this season. She is the program’s career wins leader in both singles (77) and doubles (64). A member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Weltman was also named to the UAlbany Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, and was the team’s co-MVP this season.

All-Academic squads for team sports are based on the number of athletes that participate in a contest at one time (example: six players in tennis) or are made up of 10 student-athletes for individual sports. There may be more student-athletes recognized if a tie exists or fewer if eligibility requirements limit the number of nominees. To be nominated for the distinction, student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve for their team and participate in at least 50 percent of their team’s games or competitions. In the classroom, student-athletes must have a 3.30 GPA and have completed at least one calendar year at their institution.
