McGurrin Repeats As Academic All-American
University of Scranton senior men’s tennis player
Tim McGurrin (Clarks Summit, Pa./Scranton
Preparatory) has hit a lot of aces in his career—and
not all of them have been on a tennis court.
Today, McGurrin was honored for the aces he's hit in the classroom, repeating as a College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic all-American in a program sponsored by Capital One. He was named Divsion III men's at-large second team after landing third-year honors a year ago.
The at-large team honors those student-athletes who compete in the following sports: fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo, and wrestling.
McGurrin, who graduated from the university with a degree in
accounting in three years and competed this past spring while
pursuing a Master of Business administration degree, is now one of
13 student-athletes in Royals’ history to earn Academic
all-America honors more than once. Overall, the university
has produced 31 Academic all-Americans.
On the tennis court, McGurrin did his part in establishing the Royals as one of the top programs in the Landmark Conference, leading Scranton to four straight Landmark tournament championship match appearances under the leadership of veteran head coach Keith Hetsko. A three-time first-team all-Landmark selection in both singles (2011-2013) and doubles (2011-2013), McGurrin finished his career with a record of 38-19 in singles (.667) and 42-17 in doubles (.712).
On May 11, McGurrin was named the male recipient of the Carlesimo Award for academic and athletic excellence at the university’s 22nd annual Senior Student-Athlete Luncheon.
