W&L's Tabb Named CoSIDA Academic All-American

TOWSON, Md. -- Washington and Lee women’s senior women’s tennis player Katie Tabb (Minneapolis, Minn./Edina) has been named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine College Division Academic All-America At-Large squad as a third team selection.

Tabb is just the fourth W&L women’s tennis player to be honored and the first since Katie Kingsbury (first team) and Ginny Wortham (third team) in 2007.

The 2009 ODAC/Farm Bureau Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Tabb was a two-time ODAC Player of the Year honoree, an eight-time First Team All-ODAC selection, and a six-time All-American, as well as the 2006 Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s (ITA) Atlantic South Region Rookie of the year and the 2009 ITA Atlantic South Senior Player of the Year.

Tabb concluded the 2009 season with a 17-7 singles mark and an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Championships. She also posted a 21-8 doubles ledger and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the second-straight year. Her 89 singles wins are good for sixth all-time at W&L, while her 108 doubles wins are tied for the most in school history.

Tabb’s selection to the CoSIDA Academic All-America squad brings W&L's all-time total to 49 student-athletes honored since 1975. The CoSIDA College Division consists of student-athletes from all NCAA Division II, III and NAIA schools across the United States.
