LINDSAY HAGERMAN NAMED SOUTH REGION ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee freshman Lindsay Hagerman (Dallas, Texas/Highland Park) has been honored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) as the Atlantic South Region Rookie of the Year.

As one of four regional-award winners, Hagerman will now move onto the national ballot where she will be one of four freshman considered for NCAA Division III National Rookie of the Year honors.

Hagerman, the 14th ranked singles player in Division III, earned All-ODAC honors at No. 1 singles after posting a 20-4 record. In addition, she was an All-ODAC selection at No. 2 doubles after accumulating a 19-3 record.

Hagerman is the first W&L women's tennis player to receive the Atlantic South Region Rookie of the Year award since 1998, when current W&L senior Melissa Hatley (Columbia, S.C./Heathwood Hall) earned the award.

The Generals finished their regular season with a record of 18-2 and are awaiting their seeding for the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
