Two Bruins Earn All-Pac-10 Academic Honors

May 28, 2004

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA's Lauren Fisher made the first team and Jackie Carleton was listed as an honorable mention selection, as All-Pac-10 Academic Women's Tennis Teams were released by the Conference Friday.

Fisher, a redshirt junior from Pittsburgh, Pa., carries a 3.60 grade point average and is majoring in Communications Studies. She helped UCLA reach the team finals at the NCAA Championships last week, anchoring the Bruins' No. 5 singles position. She plays No. 1 doubles with partner Daniela Bercek. The duo is still alive in the NCAA Doubles Draw, reaching the finals with a semifinal win Friday.

Carleton, a sophomore from Jenkintown, Pa., started the season as the Bruins' No. 1 singles player and has played mostly at the No. 2 position. She is currently ranked No. 18 nationally in singles and No. 43 in doubles with partner Feriel Esseghir.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.
