Smukler Gears Up for NCAA Individual Championships

>NCAA RELEASE

AMHERST, Mass. – Amherst College first-year Camille Smukler of the women's tennis team has been selected as one of 32 student-athletes to compete at the 2017 NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Individual Championships in singles play this Thursday-Saturday, May 25-27 at The Champions Tennis Club in Chattanooga, Tenn.

For the individual championships, the national committee selects seven singles players and three doubles teams from each of the four regions based on win-loss record, strength of schedule and eligibility and availability of student-athletes.

A native of Villanova, Pa., Smukler enters NCAA competition after a stellar first-year campaign in which she earned Second Team All-NESCAC honors in singles and doubles and was named the NESCAC Rookie of the Year. Owning a 9-8 overall singles record in 2016-17, Smukler played all but one of her dual singles matches from the first court for the Mammoths and was ranked the No. 8 student-athlete in the Northeast region in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll (April 27).
