SAN BRUNO, Calif. — With the conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year, two BYU men's tennis players were honored by the West Coast Conference's 12th annual WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll, which recognizes student-athletes that have balanced athletic success with academic excellence.

Sophomore Francis Sargeant and junior Travis Fillmore collected the honors in a season that saw the Cougars go 21-7 en route to their third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last four years. Sargeant finished the season with a 29-10 singles record while also finishing the season 21-9 in doubles. Along with doubles partner Patrick Kawka, the duo was voted Doubles Team of the Year in the ITA Mountain Region.

Fillmore saw time on the No. 2 doubles team with senior Spencer Smith, helping BYU to an undefeated season in region play. He also led the team in the fall season with a 9-4 record in singles play.

For the second consecutive year, over 1,000 WCC student-athletes garnered honors on the Commissioner's Honor Roll for possessing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Only grades earned at WCC institutions are used in calculating the grade point average for this award. To be considered for this honor, student-athletes must meet the following requirements: individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year; the cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale; the individuals must have successfully completed an average of at least 12 graded credit hours (non pass-fail hours) per term. The conference recognizes those on the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll in three separate categories: 4.00-3.75 — Gold Honors; 3.74-3.50 — Silver Honors; 3.49-3.00 — Bronze Honors.
