Eskenazi, Latycheva Earn All-Ivy in Women's Tennis

PHILADELPHIA – After a flourishing finish to the regular season that saw the University of Pennsylvania women’s tennis team knock off three ranked Ivy League teams in the final four matches, senior Sol Eskenazi and junior Sonya Latycheva were named All-Ivy by the league this week.

In her final season, Sol Eskenazi wrapped up an illustrious Penn career, becoming the most highly decorated women’s tennis player in Penn history. Eskenazi was named First-team All-Ivy in singles four consecutive seasons, and First-team All-Ivy in doubles for three straight seasons, and Second-team All-Ivy in doubles one season. Additionally, in her freshman season she was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year. She finished her career with a 76-29 overall singles record and 74-25 overall doubles record.

Eskenazi earned her fourth First-team All-Ivy honor in singles, after being a unanimous selection in 2015. In achieving the feat, Eskenazi becomes just the third Penn woman to win First-team All-Ivy in singles all four years of her career, joining Barrie Bernstein (1992-95) and Yulia Rivelis (2005-08).

Earning Second-team All-Ivy in doubles this season, the pair of Eskenazi and Sonya Latycheva went 6-4 overall and 3-3 in Ivy League matches they partnered together.

The All-Ivy recognition in doubles for Eskenazi and Latycheva is nothing new, as the pair was named First-team All-Ivy in 2012-13. In the two seasons they have earned Ivy League honors in doubles combined, the pair is 31-9 playing together.
