May 16, 2011

Three members of the Middlebury College women's tennis team have earned first-team All-NESCAC honors. Junior Victoria Aiello (Milton, Mass.) and sophomore Leah Kepping (Northport, N.Y.) earned the honor in singles, while Kepping and her doubles partner, sophomore Brittany Faber (Minnetonka, Minn.) earned doubles honors. The threesome helped lead the Panthers to a solid 11-6 season, advancing to the NCAA Regional Finals.

Aiello earns first-team honors for the third consecutive season. The 2009 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, posted an 8-6 record in dual match play at No. 1 singles this spring for the Panthers. Kepping collected All-NESCAC honors on the singles squad for the first time with a 12-3 record at No. 2 in dual match play. She added first-team doubles along with partner Faber, as the two went 13-4 at the No. 1 position for the Panthers.
