McGurrin Named Landmark Senior Scholar-Athlete For Men's Tennis
The awards continue to roll in for senior Tim
McGurrin (Clarks Summit, Pa./Scranton Preparatory) of
The University of Scranton men’s tennis team.
Today, the Landmark Conference announced that McGurrin has been selected the Senior Scholar-Athlete.
He is now one of five Royal student-athletes to be named a Landmark Conference Senior Scholar-Athlete in their respective sport for the recently completed 2012-2013 academic year, joining Bobby Della Polla (Havertown, Pa./St. Joseph’s Preparatory) of the baseball team, Emily Farrell (Telford, Pa./Souderton Area) of the women’s soccer team, Gretchen Kempf (Warrington, Pa./Central Bucks South) of the field hockey team, and men’s soccer player Bill McGuiness (Forty Fort, Pa./Wyoming Valley West).
An accounting major, McGurrin graduated in three years with a perfect 4.0 grade point average and played his final season of intercollegiate competition while pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree at the university this past spring. He was twice named Capital One Academic all-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), was selected to the Landmark Conference all-Academic team in each of the last two years, and was named to the conference’s Academic Honor Roll three times. On Saturday, May 11, he received the Carlesimo Award for academic and athletic excellence at the university’s 22nd annual Senior Student-Athlete Luncheon.
On the court, McGurrin served as team captain twice and was voted first-team all-conference for his play in both singles and doubles in each of the past three seasons. He was instrumental in leading the Royals of head coach Keith Hetsko to a four-year record of 40-21 (.656), including four straight Landmark Conference tournament championship match appearances. He finished his career with a 38-19 record in singles (.667) and 42-18 mark in doubles (.700).
