Middlebury's Leung garners DIII singles championship with straight-set victory
Middlebury’s Loz-Sze Leung captured the 2013 NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Singles Championship on Saturday.
Leung, a sophomore, earned a 6-1, 6-3 win against Kristin Lim of Claremont-M-S in the title match.
Leung becomes Middlebury’s second women’s tennis singles champion, with Helen Motter taking home the title in ’93.
Leung earned straight-set wins in all five of her matches. She earned a 6-1, 6-1 win against Bronte Goodhue of Sewanee, before topping Sofia Vega of Texas Lutheran 6-3, 6-1 in the second round. Leung had little trouble with Katie Cecil of Carnegie Mellon in the quarterfinals, picking up a 6-1, 6-1 victory. In her semifinal match, she was a 6-3 in the first set against Jordan Brewer of Amherst, before battling back to take a 7-5 victory in Set 2.
Leung captured the ITA singles national title during her first fall on campus in ’11. Last spring, she advanced to the NCAA title match, while also reaching the ITA singles championship this past fall.
