ETSU tops all A-Sun schools with five First, Second Team selections

MACON, Ga. (April 16, 2014) - For the seventh time in the past eight seasons, the ETSU women's tennis team has placed a player on the All-Atlantic Sun First Team, with both Lyn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) and Giulia Andreazza (Balneario Camboriu, Brazil) earning the honor. The Bucs saw a league-best five players selected to the First or Second Team.

This season marks the sixth time ETSU has placed multiple players on the First Team.

Choo, who has been named to the First Team each of her first two seasons at ETSU, finished the season with a 22-9 overall singles record, including a 6-1 mark in league play. Meanwhile, Andreazza went 7-1 in A-Sun singles play, and teamed with Jessica Brumit (Elizabethton, Tenn.) to go 6-1 in A-Sun doubles play.

Joining Choo and Andreazza with All-Conference honors were Brumit, Ana Gerbasi (Caracas, Venezuela), and Salma Dahbi (Marrakech, Morocco), who each were named to the All-Atlantic Sun Second Team.

Brumit went 20-3 in singles play during the fall and spring and finished with a perfect 7-0 record in A-Sun competition. Currently, Brumit is riding a team-best nine-match win streak.
