Women's Tennis 2016-2017 Season In Review


May 30, 2017 The Loyola University Maryland women's tennis team had a successful and competitive 2016-2017 tennis season, enhanced with an exciting 4-3 win over St. Bonaventure and Patriot League victories against Lafayette and Holy Cross.

Senior captain Ania Krawiec completed her four-year tennis career on a high note with a team-best 15 singles wins at No. 6 and eight victories at No. 1 doubles with junior Amanda Lanciano. Krawiec accumulated 47 singles wins and 50 doubles victories. Thirty of those doubles wins came with Lanciano who was her partner for three years. Krawiec was voted the team's Most Valuable Player as a sophomore, and she set her standards high. She led by example, posting a perfect 4.0 grade-point average during her final semester and earning Dean's List honors all four years as a pre-medicine major.

After studying abroad in Newcastle, England, during the fall semester, Lanciano returned to take over the top spot in the Greyhounds singles lineup. She had nine singles wins during the spring to give her 44 care victories; Lanciano also posted eight doubles wins to bring her career-total to 43 in three seasons. She earned team Most Valuable Player honors for the second year in a row.

Junior Nicole Eberle studied abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, during the fall semester to advance all the way from No. 6 singles to No. 2in the Greyhounds lineup. Her four singles wins raised her career total to 32 in three years, and she competed with classmate Julie Clark at No. 3 doubles, as well. The duo combined for six victories, pushing Eberle's career total to 26.

Clark spent the fall semester in Greece and returned to compete at No. 5 singles and No. 3 doubles with Eberle. Clark won eight singles matches during the spring, raising her career total to 38 in three seasons, and she also had seven doubles wins to move her total to 36 at Loyola.

Freshman Lin Robertson made an immediate and positive impact in her first year as a Greyhound. She tied Krawiec for the most singles wins (15) at No. 4, and she paired with classmate Alexandria Agee for nine doubles victories at No. 2. Robertson won two matches and advanced to the singles semifinals at the Bucknell Invitational in the fall. She was voted the team's Most Dedicated Player by her peers.

Also a freshman, Agee competed well in her first year at Loyola as she played at No. 3 singles and No. 2 doubles. She was a singles consolation finalist at the Bucknell Invitational in the fall, and she reached the semifinals in singles at the Patriot League Kickoff Invitational that was hosted by Lehigh. Agee won the clinching singles point in the Greyhounds' 4-3 win over St. Bonaventure.

The women's team gained valuable experience this season that will propel them into the 2017-18 season with high hopes. The student-athletes continued their dedication and excellence in the classroom, as well.
