Five Broncos earn All-conference tennis honors

Tsai leads five Cal Poly Pomona on all-CCAA teams


POMONA – Senior Jenny Tsai capped her four-year career with Cal Poly Pomona in fine fashion by earning first-team all-California Collegiate Athletic Association honors, the conference announced Wednesday.

            Tsai, an Artesia native, played No. 1 singles for the second consecutive season. She finished her four-year career with three all-CCAA honors. She completed her career with 44-39 record in singles play and 45-33 in doubles.

            “Jenny has played standout tennis during her entire career at Cal Poly Pomona,” coach Sandy Kriezel said. “She’s been a leader for us and she has shown a quiet resolve in everything she does. We’re going to miss her next season.”

            The Broncos placed four players on the all-CCAA second team – junior Jessica Winkler (Fullerton), sophomore Mallory Brady (Torrance) and freshmen Jennifer Chow (Diamond Bar) and Kaitlin Wooldridge (Fort Collins, Colo.).

            Winkler played No. 2 singles this past season and played No. 1 doubles (with Tsai) and finished the season at No. 3 doubles with Wooldridge. Winkler and Tsai were 3-4 overall and 4-5 overall with Wooldridge.

            Brady went 11-7 while playing at No. 3 singles. She was the winningest player for the Broncos this season.

            Chow came on strong late in the season. She went 5-4 overall (5-2 at No. 4 singles) and teamed with Tsai at No. 1 doubles (6-6).

            Wooldridge played No. 5 singles and went 6-8 at that spot and 10-10 overall. In addition to her doubles play with Winkler, she and Brady went 4-4 at No. 3 doubles.

            The Broncos finished the season 7-10 overall and earned their 21st trip to the NCAA Division II postseason. That number is the most of any Bronco athletic program in school history.
