FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.—Senior Camille Wilson (Cincinnati, Ohio) and sophomore Lizzy Engsberg (Atlanta, Ga.) were both named to the USA South West Division Second Team on Thursday as announced by the USA South Conference.
All awards are voted on by the women's tennis coach at each institution. The divisional team voting is completed only by those coaches in the particular division. The all-conference and individual award voting are completed by all coaches.
The Scotties received numerous honors for the second consecutive year—their second season in the USA South—after finishing in the playoff hunt once again. Agnes Scott won its final four conference matches to sneak into postseason play as the fourth seed in the West. They will take on undefeated Methodist, the East Division top seed, on Friday morning at 10 a.m. in LaGrange.
Wilson, a co-captain for the Scotties, has been an anchor in the back half of the schedule for Agnes Scott. With a tough schedule lined up at the start, Wilson started slowly in the win column but locked down one of the longest win streaks in recent school history by ending the year on a nine-match spurt. Splitting time between the fourth and fifth spots for a majority of the season, Wilson added some stability to the back half of the Scotties' lineup that was shaken up at the start of the year.
She ended the regular season with a 10-9 individual record, including a conference-leading 6-1 mark between her two flights. Wilson also teamed up with classmate Anastasia Bennett (Marietta, Ga.) down the stretch to notch a 5-4 record at second doubles and 2-1 in conference play.
Engsberg saw herself on the West Division Second Team for the second year in a row, following up a sensational rookie season with a steady year. She was thrust into the top spot for half of the season due to a shaken lineup, but spent a majority of the conference season at the second flight for a total of eight singles' victories. She also won four of seven conference matches.
Engsberg and senior captain Taylor Lee (Alpharetta, Ga.) were just a hair under .500 at first doubles at 8-9, but also had a solid 3-3 mark in conference action.
Jasmine Keiler (Newnan, Ga.) was the Scotties representative on the conference's All-Sportsmanship team.
