IRVING, Texas -
Redshirt junior Clifford Marsland was named to the Conference USA Men’s Tennis All-Academic Team for the third year in a row, the league announced today.
Marsland is one of two Golden Hurricane players ranked among the ITA's Top 125. He enters the C-USA Tennis Championship as the second-highest ranked singles player at No. 48 where he's 15-3 in duel matches. The Perth, Australia native is a two-time All-C-USA Singles first team honoree as well as a two-time ITA Scholar Athlete and C-USA Player of the Week selection. The three-time C-USA Honor Roll member owns a 3.51 GPA in exercise and sports science.
Marsland and the rest of the Hurricane open up the Conference USA Men’s Tennis Championship at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 19, against the winner of the tournament’s only first round contest between No. 8-seed UCF and No. 9-seed East Carolina.
“He is a winner in the classroom and on the court,” commented Head Coach Vince Westbrook. ”He strives to be the best in both arenas, and that is the type of student-athletes we have here at The University of Tulsa. He will be a winner in life in whatever he pursues.”
