MIDDLEBURY, Conn. – University of the Sciences women's tennis junior Karla Miletic received the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Top XVI Award at the CACC Women's Tennis Banquet on Friday night.
The Top XVI Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the CACC championships. In order to be considered, the student-athlete must be at least a sophomore in academic and athletics standing as well as a member of the active roster.
Miletic's honors means that University of the Sciences has now received the last three CACC Top XVI Awards in the sport of women's tennis, with Abbygail Gamarnik receiving the accolade in both 2016 and 2017.
Miletic boasts a perfect 4.0 GPA through her first four semesters at USciences, therefore earning Dean's List Honors in each of those four semesters.
This past spring, she became the fifth student-athlete in USciences history to be voted a CoSIDA Academic All-American, and she was also named the 2017-18 Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Women's Tennis Performer of the Year.
Additionally, she is a two-time ITA Scholar-Athlete, a 2017-18 D2 ADA Academic Achievement Award recipient, and a 2017 CACC All-Academic Team honoree.
University of the Sciences women's tennis advanced to its third consecutive CACC Semifinals in 2018, tying a program record set in the first three years of the CACC Women's Tennis Tournament from 2005-07. In addition, the Devils matched last year's program record with five CACC victories in an eight-match league schedule.
