Kathryn Schmidt qualifies for Tennis Championships

<r the second straight year, Carleton College sophomore Kathryn Schmidt ‘12 was among 32 single players selected by the NCAA Division III Women’s Tennis Committee to compete at the NCAA Division III Women’s Tennis Championships. Schmidt is the first Knight since Leslie Gale '91 to qualify twice for the NCAA tournament as an individual player.

The 2010 singles and doubles championships will be hosted by the University of Mary Washington, May 28-30, at the Battleground Tennis Complex in Fredericksburg, Va. The draw for the individual championships will be done by the women’s tennis committee and released on the last day of the team championships, Thursday, May 27.

Schmidt earned a spot in the 2009 national singles tournament as a rookie, losing in the first round to semifinalist Jackie Schtemberg of The College of New Jersey. The Carleton sophomore returned to the national spotlight this past fall as she won the ITA Midwest Regional and finished fifth at the ITA Small College Championships. Schmidt was tabbed All-MIAC at both singles and doubles once again in 2010, and she has gone undefeated during league play at both types of competition during her first two seasons. She ended the regular season with an impressive 15-1 overall singles record against Division III opponents, including a 4-1 record versus regionally ranked challengers.
