Rhode Island freshman Galina Chernykh (Tomsk, Russia) earned an Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis All-Conference First Team selection. The Rams have now had at least one All-Conference pick in each of the last seven seasons.
Chernykh becomes the first freshman in the history of the Rhody tennis pro-gram to earn first team all-conference honors, and just the second ever Ram to land a spot on the A-10 First Team (Lara Maurer ’07 was the first). The honor follows an outstanding freshman season where she posted a 15-4 dual match record at No. 1 singles and went 18-6 overall.
