Wednesday, April 30, 2008

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 30, 2008) - The NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Subcommittee has selected the 64 singles players and 32 doubles teams that will compete in the 2008 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships. Sophomore Yevgeniya Stupak (Kyiv, Ukraine) received an automatic bid to the 2008 NCAA singles championship hosted by the University of Tulsa which begins on May 21.

 

Automatic qualification into the Division I singles championships will be awarded to any conference with one or more eligible singles players ranked in the ITA Top 125 for eligible/entered singles players.  For conferences with more than one singles player within the ITA Top 125 eligible/entered singles players, the subcommittee will apply the NCAA selection criteria to determine which student-athlete is the automatic qualifier from those conferences.

 

All matches shall be the best of three sets.  Regular scoring and a 12-point tiebreaker at six games all will be used for all matches.

 

The 81st-ranked Stupak has 23 victories on the season with wins coming over No. 39 Yvette Hyndman of No. 2 Georgia, and No. 17 Amanda Taylor of No. 11 Vanderbilt.

 

She becomes the first-ever ETSU women's tennis player as well as the first-ever Atlantic Sun player to ever be selected for the NCAA singles championship. Stupak has been ranked during every single ranking period this spring and she is also the highest ranked player ranked all season not from a Top 75 ranked team.

 

Additionally Stupak is also the first-ever ETSU women's tennis player to ever be ranked in singles, doubles, regionally ranked and seeded in the ITA Regional Championships.
