Chulani, Eisenman Earn Second-Team Academic All-America Honors for Athenas Tennis

CLAREMONT, Calif. - Junior Alisha Chulani and sophomore Lindsay Eisenman earned second-team Division III Women's Tennis Academic All-America honors from the College Sports Communicators, the organization announced today.

The Academic All-America program recognizes student-athletes who combine athletic success with high academic achievement. Chulani and Eisenman were part of a CMS team that spent the entire season ranked No. 1 in the nation, before reaching the national semifinals. Chulani helped the Athenas to national titles in both 2022 and 2023, while Eisenman joined the team for 2023 title a year ago. 

Both also earned All-America honors this year in both singles and doubles. Chulani reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA singles championship, as well as the finals of the doubles championship, with Nikolina Batoshvili to capture All-America honors in both for the second straight season, as well as for the third time in doubles. Eisenman earned ITA West Region championships in the fall in singles and doubles (with Ella Brissett) earning her All-America honors in both as well. 

In the classroom, both carry high GPAs with Chulani majoring in engineering at Harvey Mudd, and Chulani majoring in science management at Claremont McKenna. They have been honored on both the SCIAC All-Academic and the ITA Scholar-Athlete teams.

CMS finished the year with a 24-2 record, and is now 51-3 in the last two seasons, and 78-6 since 2022, with two national titles in that span and an appearance in the semifinals this year. 

Chulani and Eisenman become the fourth and fifth CMS student-athletes to earn Academic All-America honors this academic year, joining Frank Applebaum (men's swim and dive), Josh Angle (men's basketball), and Georgia McGovern (volleyball).
