Chong, a four-time NCAA champion and one of the most decorated Division III women's tennis players of all-time, is enjoying another stellar season for the Cardinals (14-3) in which she's helped guide the team to their first NCAA Quarterfinal appearance in program history. Wesleyan will face a familiar foe in No. 4 Middlebury on Monday, May 21 at 6 p.m. ET on the campus of Claremont Mudd-Scripps in Claremont, Calif.

The senior from Hong Kong recently earned her third NESCAC Player of the Year award as well and is currently perfect against Division III opponents this season with a 24-0 record. Additionally, she is 30-2 in doubles action with just one loss against a Div. III team, while upsetting Div. I opponents from the University of North Carolina and the University of Kentucky.

In dual match play, Chong is 15-0 in #1 singles and 14-1 in #1 doubles. The defending doubles champion, alongside partner Victoria Yu '19, and three-time defending singles champ, will look to guide Wesleyan to its first-ever national title starting Monday. Following team play, she'll defend her crowns in the individual championships which start Thursday, May 24.
