Nicole Tan Earns Academic All-District Honors for Second Straight Year
CLAREMONT, Calif. - Senior women's tennis player Nicole Tan earned a spot on the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District 8 team in a vote of the district's SIDs, the organization announced today.
By earning Academic All-District distinction on the Division III Women's At-Large team (which includes nominees from numerous different sports), Tan is now eligible for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, which will be announced in June. A year ago, Tan captured third-team Academic All-America honors, giving her a chance to repeat on the national award list for the second year in a row.
Tan was one of 12 student-athletes chosen from District 8, which included student-athletes from the district's golf, lacrosse, tennis and water polo teams. Three of the district's winners, which stretches over 21 states from Iowa to Hawaii as well as Canada, were from SCIAC institutions, with Victoria Rose Meek of Cal Lutheran women's water polo and Taylor Beckwith of Whittier women's golf also earning a spot on the list.
Tan had a spectacular career with the CMS women's tennis program, earning All-America honors five times (three in doubles and two in singles). She played No. 1 singles on the Athenas' national championship winning team as a sophomore in 2018, and twice was the runner-up in the NCAA Division III doubles championship in 2017 and 2019. Her career record in singles and doubles combined was 136-43, while she helped CMS to a combined 99-5 record in dual matches over her four seasons.
In the classroom, Tan carried a 3.85 grade point average as a neuroscience major at Claremont McKenna. She will be attending the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore, a graduate medical school set up by Duke University School of Medicine and National University of Singapore (NUS).
