HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth women’s tennis head coach Bob Dallis announced the 2017-18 team awards at the Big Green’s annual end-of-year banquet. Seniors Kristina Mathis and Julia Schroeder, and junior Allison Chuang were recognized for their performances throughout the season.
Co-captain Mathis was named the Most Valuable Player. The Ivy League Player of the Year and All-Ivy first-team selection in singles played at the No. 1 position all season, going 12-7 in dual matches and 6-1 in conference play. Her season is not done just yet, as she was one of 64 singles players to qualify for the 2018 NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championship and will be the league’s lone representation at Wake Forest.
Schroeder, also co-captain for her last season on the team, received the Class of 1985 Spirit Award, which is given to the player who embodies the values of Dartmouth women’s tennis. For the first time in her career, Schroeder was recognized for both singles and doubles play, being named second team for singles and first team for doubles. Throughout the spring, she went 11-10 in singles play and 11-9 in doubles action.
Chuang was voted the Big Green’s Most Improved Player. She played most of her doubles matches this spring with Madison Hwang at the No. 3 position, going 7-2 overall and 4-1 in Ivy League matches alongside her freshman teammate.
Mathis will head to North Carolina for the singles championship, which will run from May 23-28.
