June 1, 2007
LOS ANGELES - The UCLA women's tennis team had a total of five players earn All-Pac-10 Academic honors on Friday, as the Bruins led the conference with three first-team selections. In addition, UCLA was the only school to place more than one player on the first team.
Headlining the group were first-team selections Alex McGoodwin, Tracy Lin and Elizabeth Lumpkin. McGoodwin, a senior from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., owns the second highest cumulative grade point average in the conference at 3.91. She is majoring in Geography and Environmental Studies, and was recently named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District-VIII team, meaning she is now eligible for Academic All-America honors. It marks McGoodwin's third straight selection to the first team (players are not eligible as freshmen).
Lin, a junior from Anaheim, Calif., recently concluded a stellar run in the NCAA Singles Championships, advancing all the way to the quarterfinals. She owns a 3.64 GPA and is majoring in Physiological Science.
Lumpkin, a junior from Naperville, Ill., owns a 3.77 GPA and is majoring in Political Science. She played No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles for the Bruins in 2007, ending the season ranked in both categories (#121 singles / #29 in doubles).
Rounding out the group are second-team selection Riza Zalameda and honorable mention selection Anna-Viktoria Lind. Zalameda, a junior who is majoring in Anthropology, recently earned All-America honors for the third time in her career by finishing in the top-20 of the Fila/ITA Singles Rankings (#18). Lind, a sophomore from Stockholm, Sweden, finished the season with a 23-8 singles record.
