MILWAUKEE - Senior Carly Grant of the MSOE women's tennis team became the first Academic All-American in program history when she was selected to the Google Cloud CoSIDA Academic All-America Third Team Tuesday.
Grant was honored among the organization's At-Large teams, which encompass tennis, hockey, rowing, swimming & diving, and lacrosse among others.
Grant wrapped up her career this season, leading the Raiders to their most successful season in program history. She played at No. 1 singles for the third-straight season and at No. 1 doubles for the fourth, helping the team to a school-record 11 wins, a repeat trip to the NACC Tournament, and the program's first-ever league semifinal appearance. She's been named All-NACC for singles play three times and was a doubles selection as a freshman. She holds school records with 38 career singles wins, 41 career doubles wins, and 18 wins alongside Sammy Soeder as the most prolific doubles pairing in program history. She never played below No. 2 in either singles or doubles in 68 career matches.
In the classroom, Grant boasts a 3.97 grade point average as a biomolecular engineering major.
Grant is MSOE's fifth At-Large Academic All-American, it's first since Joel Vande Boom (wrestling) in 2012 and the first female in department history.
