Middlebury College’s Loz-Sze Leung has captured the 2013 NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Singles Championship. The sophomore earned a 6-1, 6-3 win over Kristin Lim of Claremont in the title match. Competition took place at Stowe Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Leung becomes Middlebury’s second women’s tennis singles champion, with Helen Motter taking home the title in ’93.

Leung earned straight-set wins in all five of her matches. She earned a 6-1, 6-1 win over Bronte Goodhue of Sewanee, before topping Sofia Vega of Texas Lutheran 6-3, 6-1 in the second round. Leung had little trouble with Katie Cecil of Carnegie Mellon in the quarterfinals, picking up a 6-1, 6-1 victory. In her semifinal match, she was a 6-3 winner in the first set over Jordan Brewer of Amherst, before battling back to take a 7-5 victory in set #2.

Leung captured the ITA singles national title during her first fall on campus in ’11. Last spring, she advanced to the NCAA title match, while also reaching the ITA singles championship this past fall.
