PHILADELPHIA - After an 11-8 season and a second-place finish in the Ivy League, the University of Pennsylvania women's tennis team received two first-team All-Ivy selections. Junior Kana Daniel was named a unanimous selection in singles, and Daniel and senior Sonya Latycheva were unanimously awarded first-team honors in doubles.
This is Daniel's first All-Ivy selection in singles; she went 11-5 in the spring including a 4-3 mark in the Ivy League. Daniel played in the Quakers' top spot for the entire spring and helped them to their best finish since 2008.
Daniel and Latycheva both take home their second All-Ivy selections in doubles; Daniel was a first-team honoree in 2014 with Sol Eskenazi, and Latycheva teamed with Eskenazi to gain second-team honors last year. The Quakers' top pair of 2016 were nothing short of dominant, going 14-3 during the spring. Their only losses came to opponents ranked in the top 70 in the ITA rankings, while they defeated the No. 65 doubles team at Rice in March.
Penn is currently ranked No. 49 in the ITA rankings and will have to wait until May 3 to find out if it will be playing in the NCAA Tournament.
