SAN BRUNO, Calif. – BYU men’s tennis placed six student-athletes on the West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll for 2017-2018, the league announced Thursday.

Three Cougars – Matthew Pearce, John Pearce and David Ball – earned Gold Honors (4.00-3.75). Sam Tullis received Silver Honors (3.74-3.50). Bronze Honors (3.49-3.00) were claimed by Jacob Tullis and Sean Hill.

M. Pearce, J. Pearce and S. Tullis are all repeat recipients of commissioner’s honors. As a team, BYU men’s tennis placed two more student-athletes on the honor roll than it did last season.

Student-athletes’ grades received at WCC institutions qualified them for the award. To be considered for this honor, the following criteria needed to be met:

  1. Individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year.
  2. The cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale.
  3. The individuals must have successfully completed an average of at least 12 graded credit hours (non-pass-fail hours) per term.

The conference recognizes those on the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll in three separate categories:

  • 4.00-3.75 - Gold Honors
  • 3.74-3.50 - Silver Honors
  • 3.49-3.00 - Bronze Honors
