PHILADELPHIA – University of the Sciences women's tennis junior Karla Miletic has become the first two-time Academic All-American, as voted by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), in USciences history.
She was one of 15 Division II student-athletes from the over 300 NCAA Division II institutions voted on to the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-America® Division II Women's At-Large First Team on Thursday.

A total of six University of the Sciences student-athletes have earned the distinction of Academic All-America® since 2002.

The Zadar, Croatia native also recently repeated as the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Women's Tennis Performer of the year.
She currently sports a perfect 4.0 GPA through six semesters as a Physics major, and she was voted All-CACC (Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference) for the third year in a row in the fall.
