Cecil Claims Another College Championship Crown

May 26, 2009 01:19 PM

Mallory Cecil became the first women’s player in ACC history to win both NCAA team and individual championships, and only the 14th player ever to do so.  The Spartanburg native has had an eventful week as she, and the Duke team, claimed both the singles and team titles within just seven days.  Mallory lost only four matches all season and has made a huge impact in her freshman year.  For more information on Mallory's win you can visit

Josipa Bek, from Clemson, and Laura Gioia, from Furman, both made it to the round of 16 in the NCAA individual championships.  In addition, Gira Shofield, from USC, made it to the second round.  On the men's side Diego Cubas, from USC, was the only player to advance past the first round.  Laura Gioia may have had some consolation, however, as she became the first Furman player to receive All-American status.
