Seven Eagles Named to All-UAA Womens Tennis Team
Following the team’s second-place finish at the conference
championships last weekend, seven members of the Emory University
women’s tennis team earned all-University Athletic
Association (UAA) honors, including four who were named to the
Emory junior Lindsay Reidenbach and senior Sara Vrabec were named to the all-UAA first team for their singles play, while Tshema Nash and Sabra Rogers earned all-UAA first team honors for doubles. The Eagles also placed singles players Zahra Dawson and Jordan Wylie and the doubles pairings of Dawson and Lorne McManigle, and Vrabec and Wylie on the second team.
Reidenbach earned the honor for her work as the Eagles’ fifth singles player. She won her only match played to completion, defeating the University of Chicago’s Chrissy Hu 2-6, 7-5, 6-0. This is the second all-UAA honor for Reidenbach, who was named to the all-UAA first team as the fourth singles player last season.
Vrabec also won her only singles match played to completion, defeating Chicago’s Tiffany Nguyen 6-2, 6-4, as Emory’s sixth-singles player. With the victory, the senior remained perfect with a 17-0 record in Emory’s dual matches, and stands at 18-1 overall during the 2009-10 season. This is Vrabec’s second all-UAA honor for her singles play, after she was named to the first team in 2005 as Emory’s fifth singles player.
Nash and Rogers won all three of their doubles matches during the UAA Tournament, combining to outscore their opponents 24-5. This is the second all-UAA honor for the two as a doubles team, after Nash and Rogers earned the first team honor for their performance at the 2008 UAA Championships. Nash also earned second team honors for her doubles play in 2007.
Dawson played all three matches as Emory’s first singles player, going 2-1 during the tournament, with her only loss coming to the UAA Most Valuable Player. This is the second year in a row the sophomore has been honored for her singles play by the UAA, after earning first team recognition for her second singles play in 2009.
Wylie was 1-1 as Emory’s third singles player during the tournament, including a 6-0, 6-1 win over her counterpart from the University of Rochester. This is the first all-UAA honor for the freshman.
Dawson and McManigle were a perfect 2-0 in doubles matches during the tournament as Emory’s first doubles team. The pairing earned an all-UAA first team honor as the Eagles’ second doubles team last season.
Vrabec and Wylie were 2-1 as Emory’s third doubles team during the UAA Tournament, including 8-0 victories in each of the first two matches of the weekend. Vrabec has previously earned all-UAA honors for third doubles in 2008.
The Eagles, currently 17-5 this season, will finish their regular season at 11:00 AM on May 2nd at home against Brenau University.
