EAST LANSING, Mich. - Freshman Marina Bohrer (Porto Alegre, Brazil) and red-shirt sophomore Dana Guentert (Lilburn, Ga.) were recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) as 2011 Scholar-Athletes.

In her first season as a Spartan, Bohrer made quite an impact on the court, going 22-15 in singles play at the No. 3 position. She also lead the team with the most singles wins of the season. Bohrer went 6-4 in conference play, which also was a team best. Alongside partner Amy Barton, the tandem compiled a doubles record of 16-8 at the No. 1 position. Bohrer, a kinesiology major, received a 3.76 GPA for her freshman year.
After taking a medical redshirt last year, Guentert came back strong on the court for the Spartans, going 12-10 in singles play. Guentert defeated four conference opponents at the No. 5 and 6 positions. She also posted a perfect 6-0 record with doubles partner Nicole Herzog at the No. 3 position. Guentert was Michigan State's recipient of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award, which is given to the athlete that has demonstrated success both on the court and in the classroom and community, as well. The chemistry major posted a 3.92 GPA this past academic year. This marks Guentert's second career ITA Scholar-Athlete honor.
