CHICAGO – Four members of the University of Chicago women's tennis team reeled in All-University Athletic Association (UAA) status on Tuesday.

Freshman Marjorie Antohi received a pair of recognitions – she was First Team All-UAA at second singles and also voted the UAA Rookie of the Year. UChicago previously snagged Rookie of the Year four times from 2006-09.

Antohi currently owns a 24-4 singles record overall, including 18-3 at the No. 2 spot. She is riding a 10-match winning streak and leads the Maroons in victories. Playing at No. 1 doubles, Antohi possesses a 17-10 mark.

Sophomore Rachel Kim joined her teammate on the First Team All-UAA playing in the third singles position. Kim stands at 20-4 in singles action, with a 15-3 record at No. 3. She has a 16-9 doubles ledger while playing primarily with Antohi at the top spot. Kim was previously a Second Team All-UAA pick in 2016.

Alyssa Rudin was a two-time honoree after placing on the All-UAA Second Team at both sixth singles and second doubles. The freshman has made her mark with 21-2 singles record, which ranks second on the team in wins and first in winning percentage. At No. 6 singles, she is 15-1. Rudin has won nine matches in-a-row.

Senior Tiffany Chen paired with Rudin to earn All-UAA Second Team status at second doubles. The duo is 15-5 on the year, while Chen has gone 15-8 in singles playing primarily at No. 4. The senior was a Second Team All-UAA pick at No. 2 doubles last year as well.
