June 27, 2011
Two members of the 2010-11 Air Force women's tennis team, Sarah Cassman and Megumi Voight, have been named to the 2011 Academic All-Mountain West team. To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution while maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on their athletic team. This is the fourth academic all-conference honor for Cassman and the first for Voight.
Cassman, who graduated last month, led the team with 21 overall singles victories, becoming the first Falcon player in the Division I era (since 1996) to win at least 20 singles matches in each of her four seasons. She left the program ranked No. 1 on the school's career list with 88 career singles wins in the Division I era. She is also tied for No. 2 with 57 career dual match singles wins. Cassman played the majority of the 2011 season at the No. 4 singles position, posting a 10-8 record, and paired with sophomore Hannah Dake for a 15-6 record in doubles. She also won the 2011 Arthur Ashe Jr. Leadership and Sportsmanship Award for the Mountain Region. Cassman graduated with a 3.31 cumulative GPA in environmental engineering.
Voight, meanwhile, won 17 singles and 14 doubles matches during her junior season. She played all of her 19 dual matches at the No. 6 singles spot. In addition, she was 6-3 at the No. 3 spot in dual doubles matches. Voight has a 3.30 cumulative GPA and is majoring in foreign area studies.
A total of 732 student-athletes, including 60 from the Academy, were named to the spring 2011 Academic All-Mountain West team. Spring sports include baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's golf, softball, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis and men's and women's track and field.
