Let’s give credit where credit is due. Richard and William Barker just finished their careers as tennis players at Rice University.
Richard maintained a GPA of 3.82 while majoring in mathematical economic analysis and managerial studies. William held a 3.83 in economics, managerial studies and sports management.
William and Richard ended their collegiate career ranked second in doubles and were recently named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s national doubles team of the year for the second time. The duo produced a 33-3 record over the course of the year, including a perfect 20-0 mark in dual-match play. The Barker brothers also earned all-America honors for the second-straight year.
Bravo to the Barker brothers, student-athletes in the best sense of the term.
