MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – For the third consecutive year, Eudice Chong '18 of the Wesleyan University women's tennis team was named the Division III Honda Athlete of the Year nominee for tennis, as announced by Executive Director Chris Voelz of THE Collegiate Women Sports Awards (CWSA) presented by Honda.

"This past season has been a crazy ride, with our team trying to make small steps each day to improve our chances of coming up on top every match," stated Chong, the three-time NCAA Individual Singles Champion as well as the 2017 Individual Doubles Champion. "The comradery we have in our team is what keeps our team focused on reaching a common goal, and the support I get from them is phenomenal.

"It is nice to be playing at the Individual NCAA Championships knowing that my teammates will be cheering me on, but hopefully next year, we will be able to make the Elite 8 and compete as a team at the tournament venue as well. It is such an honor to be nominated for such a prestigious award, showing that hard work really does pay off!"
