CORAL GABLES, Fla. –Junior women’s tennis standout Monique Albuquerque was tapped into the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society on Tuesday for her continued excellence in the classroom.

In order to be eligible for the award, nominees must be in the top 35 percent of their class or school within the University.

“I am really happy that Monique was recognized for such an outstanding honor,” head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said.

Some of the ideals of the ODK Honor Society include exemplary character, responsible leadership and service in campus life, superior scholarship, genuine fellowship, and consecration to the democratic ideal.

“We are very proud of the student-athletes tapped into ODK,” Christopher Doell, director of athletics academic services said. It’s a tremendous honor, and it highlights their demonstrated commitment to excellence in all areas of their lives.”

Albuquerque has been the recipient of various academic honors in her brief time with the Hurricanes, with the most recent coming this past weekend when she was honored at the Miami vs. Wake Forest football game as the student-athlete of the week.

An economics major carrying a 3.907 GPA, Albuquerque has made the Athletic Director Honor Roll three times (GPA of 3.2 or higher), the Dean’s List three times (3.5 GPA), Provost’s Honor Roll twice (3.75) and qualified for the President’s Honor Roll twice for a perfect 4.0 GPA, and a University of Miami Book Buster member.

On the court, Albuquerque has gotten the 2013-14 season started with an outstanding fall campaign. The Porto Alegre, Brazil native and her doubles partner, Clementina Riobueno, have posted a 9-3 record and are currently ranked 27th in the nation.
