Tech's ten Dolle Named Honorable Mention All-State
June 3, 2010
RUSTON - Louisiana Tech freshman tennis standout Vivian ten Dolle was named honorable mention all-state by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Thursday.
Undefeated Martina Rubesova of Northwestern State and LSU's No. 1 player Neal Skupski captured player of the year honors as the LSWA announced its 2010 All-Louisiana College men's and women's tennis teams.
The teams were selected based on nominations made by the tennis playing schools in the state and voted on by an LSWA panel. All statistics and voting are based on play through each team's conference tournament appearance.
Originally from Gelderland in the Netherlands, ten Dolle was the only freshman in the Western Athletic Conference to compete in the number one position for her team as she was solid in the that position all season for the Techsters.
She collected an 18-11 overall singles record on the year with a 13-9 record in dual match play and 5-2 in tournament play. The talented freshman totaled a 3-3 record in WAC singles play while helping the Techster tennis team to the program's first ever WAC match win after topping the San Jose State team 5-2 on April 10 of this year.
She also garnered second team all-WAC honors this year, the first Lady Techster tennis player to receive such accolades since 2002 when Anabella Duque also accomplished the feat.
