April 27, 2004

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Sophomore Luiza Loureiro was named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team, the Big 12 Conference announced on Tuesday. A total of 61 men’s and women’s tennis players were honored for their success in the classroom.

This is the first academic honor of her collegiate career. To be named to the first team, a student must maintain at least a 3.20 GPA and participate in a minimum of 60 percent of the team’s matches.

“Luiza is such a hard worker on and off the court,” head coach Amy Hall said. “It’s a great honor for her and one which I know she will enjoy.”

Loureiro and the rest of the Jayhawk tennis team will compete in the Big 12 Tournament starting on Thursday against Texas Tech at 10 a.m. at the Headington Family Tennis Center in Norman, Okla.
