Junior Francis Sargeant and freshmen Matthew Pearce, Juan Canales, Jeremy Bourgeois and Jacob Sullivan were listed from the men’s team, and sophomore Mackenna Maddox and junior Morgan Anderson-Littlewood received the honor on the women’s team.

Both teams open play this September with their fall tournaments, and regular season and WCC play begins in January.

The men’s tennis team is looking forward to improve their 10-15 record. They played eight freshmen this last season, and all the freshmen recognized on the WCC honor roll, except Pearce who is leaving for an LDS mission, will be returning, now with a year of experience on the collegiate level.

Also looking forward for the next season, Sargeant, who has won 80 singles matches, is aiming for another 43 wins to become the BYU all-time leader.

On the women’s side, Anderson-Littlewood will return for her season year after a successful junior year that landed her on the All-WCC Honorable Mention list for her doubles play with teammate Meghan Sheehan-Dizon. Anderson-Littlewood was 10-1 in doubles play during the season.

The honor roll recognizes student athletes throughout the conference who excelled in the classroom as well as on the court.

The honor roll is split into three honors: gold (3.75-4.00 GPA), silver (3.50-3.74 GPA) and bronze (3.00-3.49 GPA).

Gold: Pearce
Silver: Canales
Bronze: Sargeant, Bourgeois, Sullivan, Maddox and Anderson-Littlewood
