May 27, 2004

The University of Texas at Arlington student-athletes David Corrie, Jordan Krantz and Anete Rozkalne were named to the College Sports Information Director's of America (CoSIDA) District VI at-large academic team today.

Corrie was named to the men's first-team squad while Krantz was named to the 10-member second team. Rozkalne was named to the women's second-team squad. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum 3.20 cumulative grade point average on a 4.00 scale, be a starter or key reserve on a varsity athletic team and a sophomore in athletic and academic standing.

Earlier this week, Corrie was named the student-athlete of the year in men's tennis for the second year in a row, having garnered the accolade in its first year of existence in 2003. The senior has demonstrated athletic and academic excellence on and off the court throughout his four-year career as a Maverick. He was ranked nationally as high as No. 23 and posted a 32-overall singles record this year. The London, England native was named the 2004 SLC player of the year and was selected to the all-conference team for the fourth consecutive year, earning first team honors in singles and doubles in his final campaign. Corrie has also been selected as one of 64 individuals to compete in the NCAA Individual Championships May 26-29 in Tulsa, Okla.

Adding to his athletic success, Corrie has been on UTA's honor roll every semester and a UTA Super Scholar Athlete. He owns a 3.93 GPA in economics, participates in the annual canned food drive for Mission Arlington and serves as a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Representative. Corrie also volunteers in the Monday Night Tennis Clinics at the UTA Tennis Center.

Krantz, a junior, was named to the men's golf academic all-SLC team for the second consecutive year earlier this week. The Vermillion Bay, Ontario, Canada, native averaged 75.20 stroke per round this season.

He posted a season-best round of five-under-par 65 at the Texas Maxwell Cup Tournament in Ardmore, Okla. May 15, 2004. The opening round tied for the third lowest scoring round of golf in school history. Krantz finished 11th at the SLC Championship at Magnolia, Texas with a three-round total of 220 (70-74-76). He maintains a 3.84 GPA in Exercise and Sports Science.

Rozkalne was named the SLC women's tennis the student-athlete of the year. The sophomore notched her second all-league honor with a spot on the first team in doubles this season. Rozkalne posted an 18-7 mark in doubles, including a perfect 10-0 run in SLC action. She was 19-8 and 8-1 in the SLC in singles play.

Rozkalne, who compiled a 3.95 GPA in biology, is a co-winner of the 2003-2004 B.G. Wilson Female Student-Athlete of the Year, the highest honor handed out by the UTA Athletics Department. In her career at UTA, Rozkalne has been active in the annual canned food drive for Mission Arlington and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. She is also a representative on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

The CoSIDA at-large academic team is comprised of student-athletes from golf, tennis, swimming and gymnastics. Corrie, Krantz and Rozkalne join volleyball standout Melissa Marek to the all-district squads. She was named second-team all-District VI by CoSIDA following the 2003 season.
