Alex Jago Named ITA Scholar Athlete
July 19, 2005
Rising senior Alex Jago earned his first career award from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), Tuesday, garnering ITA Scholar-Athlete Honors for having a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Jago, who finished the season with an 8-14 record in singles after battling injuries all year, also teamed with now graduated Mark Finnegan to lead the Tigers with a 12-6 record in doubles.
A native of Launceston, Australia, Jago is one of a pair of rising seniors for the 2005-06 season, which will again find the Tigers hosting the ITA Southeast Regional at The Racquet Club of Memphis, October 13-16th.
This is Jago's fifth academic honor from the 2004-05 season. In the fall, he was named to the Tiger Academic 30 and the Tiger 3.0 club, and followed that with a mention to the C-USA Academic Honor Roll earlier this spring. He was also a member of the Tiger Academic 30 this spring.
Jago is majoring in sports administration at Memphis and will be one of five returning letterwinners for the Tigers for 2005-06.
