SU roundup: Barb, Allin earn academic honors

SKILLMAN, N.J. – The Shenandoah University women’s tennis team had two of its members honored for academic achievement in awards announced recently by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Shannon Allin ’15, along with rising senior and Central graduate Molly Barb, were named as ITA Scholar Athletes.

Both women had at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale over the academic year to earn the award.

This is the second consecutive year that both have been honored.

Barb, with a perfect 4.0 GPA as a Kinesiology major, was previously named Academic All-State for the second consecutive year after earning ODAC Scholar Athlete of the Year honors for women’s tennis in 2014.

Allin had a 3.61 GPA in her first year as a graduate student.

Barb is also the Hornets No. 1 singles player and combined with Allin to play No. 1 doubles this past season.

The duo won a combined 19 singles and 18 doubles matches to help SU to a program record 12 victories this past season.
