UALR Sports Information
Release: 07/13/2012

LITTLE ROCK - Senior Veronique Luksich and sophomore Michaela McShane were honored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as Scholar-Athletes for the 2011-12 year.  In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status, a player must be a varsity letterwinner, earn a GPA of at least 3.50 for the current academic year and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.

An East London, South Africa-native, Luksich ended her junior season with a team-best 16-8 singles record and 16-9 doubles tally. She and McShane teamed to go 16-6 on the year with wins against Sun Belt foes Troy, Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee to their credit.  A criminal justice major, Luksich had a perfect 4.0 GPA in the Spring 2012 semester and sports a 3.93 cumulative GPA in her three years at UALR.

McShane compiled a 12-14 singles record in her freshman season while playing the bulk of her matches at the No. 4 singles spot. The Melbourne, Australia-native also finished the season with a 16-9 singles record, thanks in part to her 16-6 record when paired with Luksich. The two ended the season on an eight match win streak. A business major, McShane sports a 3.61 GPA after her first year at UALR.
