Release: Monday 06/06/2013 

TOWSON, Md. – Bradley junior men’s tennis player Ashton Kalhorn (Colorado Springs, Colo./Coronado {Nev.} H.S.) has been selected a third-team Capital One Academic All-American, according to an announcement from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Thursday.

With Kalhorn’s selection, Bradley Athletics has produced at least one Capital One Academic All-American in nine of the last 10 years, including six in the last three years. Kalhorn joins Evgeny Samoylov (2008, 2009) as the second men’s tennis player in Bradley history to earn Capital One Academic All-America honors and he is the 19th Bradley student-athlete to contribute to the school’s 25 all-time Capital One Academic All-America® awards from CoSIDA.

To be eligible for Academic All-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director. The Capital One Academic All-America® Division I Men’s At-Large Team is selected from the sports of fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo and wrestling.

Kalhorn is the only Missouri Valley Conference student-athlete, and joins Illinois men’s tennis player Bruno Abdelnour (2nd Team) as the only student-athletes from the state’s 13 NCAA Division I schools, to earn a spot on the men’s or women’s at-large teams. Kalhorn also is one of six men’s tennis players to earn Capital One Academic All-America® honors this spring.

Kalhorn boasts a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average as a chemistry business major. In addition to his success in the classroom, he posted an 18-15 overall singles record in 2012-13, including a 14-10 mark during the Spring dual match season, and added a 19-11 doubles record. He has helped the Braves to the most wins (43) in a 3-year period by the program since 1988-89-90 and three straight winning seasons for the first time since 1987-88-89.

Bradley’s recipient of the 2013 Spring Missouri Valley Conference Leadership and Service Award, Kalhorn has participated in a piano concert benefitting Easter Seals the last two years and organized the 2013 event, which generated more than $1,100 for the charitable organization. He also participated in the 2011 NCAA Leadership Forum and was a member of the 2011-12 Braves Council student-athlete advisory committee.
