Leung Wins ITA National Singles Title
October 15, 2011
Middebury women's tennis player Lok-Sze Leung (Hong Kong) has won the Division III ITA National Small College Tennis Championship. Matches took place at the Copeland-Cox Tennis Center in Mobile, Alabama. The Panther rookie defeated Gabrielle Clark of Emory in the finals 6-3, 6-2.
Leung broke serve at 3-2 and was solid on serve the rest of the way to win the first. She was able to survive a scary moment in the second set, falling to the court awkwardly after twisting her ankle. After nearly 10 minutes, she continued play, quickly putting an end to the match with her heavy ground strokes and aggressive play.
On day one, Leung defeated Sonja Meighan of Washington & Lee 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 in the quarterfinals. Leung had a huge victory in the semifinals on Friday, topping reigning NCAA Champion Kristin Lim of Claremont-Mudd-Scripts, 6-2, 6-2. (photos by Missy Foote).
