The USC men's and women's tennis teams combined for five honorees on the Pac-10 All-Academic lists for 2006-07, as three Trojans earned repeat honors and two picked up their first career academic accolades. Now a three-time honoree, senior Anca Anastasiu appears on the Pac-10 All-Academic First Team for the third season to lead her Trojan counterparts. Senior Jamil Al-Agba is an honorable mention recipient for the third straight season, as is junior Lindsey Nelson. Making his first appearance on the All-Academic honorable mention list is junior Kaes Van't Hof, and in her first season of eligibility for the honor, sophomore Amanda Fink also has earned honorable mention.

Amanda Fink is next with a 3.30 GPA, majoring in psychology; and two-time Honda Award finalist Lindsey Nelson holds a 3.14 GPA as a creative writing major.
On the men's side, three-time All-Academic pick Jamil Al-Agba has a 3.29 GPA as a senior business major, and first-time selection Kaes Van't Hof has improved to a 3.17 GPA as a junior majoring in business and accounting.
