W&L's HAGERMAN NAMED TO ITA COLLEGIATE ALL-STAR TEAM

SKILLMAN, N.J. -- Former Washington and Lee women's tennis player Lindsay Hagerman (Wichita Falls, Texas/Highland Park) was one of 26 players named to the 2005 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Star Team presented by the The Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy.

Hagerman, a seven-time All American, was named to the ITA All-Star Team after winning the 2005 NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Singles Title. She became the first-ever W&L women's tennis player to win the NCAA Singles Championship after she defeated DePauw's Liz Bondi, 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, in the finals. Hagerman, a two-time Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Player of the Year, was also named the 2005 ITA Atlantic South Region and National Senior Player of the Year. She captured the ITA Division III National Singles Championships this past fall and was the ITA Co-National Rookie of the Year in 2002. Hagerman finished the season with a record 37 wins (37-1) and also holds the W&L all-time record for singles (117-17) and doubles (108-17) victories.

The ITA Collegiate All-Star Team includes the nation's top-ranked men's and women's tennis players at the NCAA Division I, II, and III, NAIA, and NJCAA levels, as well as champions from the 2004 ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships and 2005 NCAA Championships.

The ITA Collegiate All-Star Team will be treated by the ITA and The Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy to a weekend in New York, highlighted by the Aug. 26 activities at the West Side Tennis Club. Following a breakfast at West Side, the ITA All-Stars will participate in doubles play with guests from 9-11 am. Starting at noon, the ITA All-Stars will then be honored at a special luncheon and presented their awards.
