Schlessman to play in NCAA singles tournament

Perkins graduate Amy Schlessman, from Kenyon College, was selected by the NCAA Women's Tennis Committee, along with 31 other players throughout the nation, to compete in the 2012 NCAA Division III Singles Championship Tournament.

Although the singles tournament will be new to Schlessman, she did make the 2010 NCAA doubles field, won her first match, and earned All-America status along with teammate Prita Kidder.

Schlessman, the Ladies' No. 1 singles player for the last two seasons, has a 13-9 record this year and a 47-24 record for her career. 

According to the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, she is ranked as the No. 8 singles player in the Central Region.

The singles championships will be held May 24-26 at Cary Tennis Park in Cary, North Carolina. The selection of individuals for the championship was based on won-lost record, strength of schedule, and eligibility and availability of student-athletes. While the field is set, the draw for the championship bracket will be completed by the NCAA Women's Tennis Committee one day before the tournament begins.
