Georgetown College men's and women's tennis were finally eligible for national academic honors. The extremely youthful bunch the past few seasons did not meet the junior status requirement for the national honor. However, now four juniors are first time honorees.

The NAIA announced its 2017 Daktronic-NAIA Scholar Athlete recipients. A.J. Berk and Tristan Nosek were on the men's list, while Shae Henry and Emily Novak were on the women's.

When you force people to sit up and take notice it is exciting to see what happens. Junior Shae Henry has been helping Georgetown College women's tennis do that for three seasons.

She quickly became a pivotal part of the Tiger team, pairing up with fellow then-freshman Natalie Fiepke, at doubles. The rookie unit worked well together and became comfortable with the college pace early. This has allowed coach Jessica Cunningham the ability to even split them up to help guide new players at doubles, but when she needs a point she knows where to go. She did this at the 2017 NAIA National Women's Tennis Championship recently and her now juniors rolled.

Georgetown College women's tennis took strides forward and set the foundation upon which coach Jessica Cunningham wants to build. The No. 23 Tigers punched the team's first ticket to the NAIA Tennis National Championship since 2008. The result against No. 11 William Woods University was not what the team had hoped for, but did leave a lot to look forward to in the years to come.

"It was a tough 7-2 loss to William Woods, but boy they fought hard," Cunningham said. "We barely lost three doubles and won one doubles. Madelyn (Kauffman) won six singles for our second point. To know we graduate no one from this team is pretty exciting.

"We had so many coaches come up and congratulate us. Had referees coming up and telling me that our ladies have the best sportsmanship. Next year is going to get really interesting – new goals."

Georgetown College women's tennis is doing something no Tiger has done since 2008 – send an entire team to nationals. The ladies got the unexpected news this past Monday.

"I had an idea that we were going to make it based on the alteration of the way at-large teams are selected," said Jessica Cunningham. "I didn't let the team in on my feelings though as I wanted it to be a surprise. At the end of conference tournament all our players are always physically and mentally drained and ready to step away from the game and focus on finals.

"So once I received the message Monday that we were in, I did a group text that said, 'Ladies, congratulations on making the national tournament, see you at practice tomorrow. Once the team got over their initial shock of qualifying for the tournament, everyone was excited to take on the challenge."

Georgetown College men's and women's tennis wrapped up a great 2017 with the Mid-South Conference banquet honors. Two Tigers earned first-team all-conference, while four more were on second-team. GC also knocked it out in the classroom with nine of the 57 student-athletes honored.

Shae Henry and Ryo Takeda have played much of the top spot for the Tigers in singles and doubles all season and are no surprise as the first-team honorees. This is Henry's third straight year earning all-conference and Takeda's second.

Joining Henry on the women's side, Lauren Fazenbaker, Natalie Fiepke and Madelyn Kauffman were second team. It is Fiepke's second all-conference honor. Tristan Nosek was the other men's representative and is his second time being recognized.
