WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—Five Arizona State women’s tennis players earned Pac-12 All-Academic honors, the Conference announced today. Senior Jacqueline Cako, the Pac-12 Senior Scholar Athlete of the Year, was named to the second-team, while four other Sun Devils earned honorable mention honors.
Cako graduated in three years from the Barrett Honors College with a degree in biological sciences. She tallied a 3.68 GPA. She plans to attend medical school after playing in the pro circuit. This is Cako’s second-straight second team honor, as she could not qualify as a freshman.
Cako is one of only five tennis players in the history of Arizona State to amass four or more All-American honors in their career. Cako joins Adria Engel (2001-03), Allison Bradshaw (1999-00) and Reka Cseresnyes (1995-98) as four-time All-American honorees. Only Kori Davidson earned more All-American honors from 1993-95 with five. She also closed out her career with an impressive upset of top-ranked player Lauren Embree of Florida in the opening round of the NCAA Championships and making it to the round of 16 in singles and the semifinals in doubles with partner senior Nicole Smith.
