KEVER NAMED TO ALL-BIG 12 WOMEN'S TENNIS SINGLES TEAM
DALLAS - University of Colorado women's tennis player Lynzee Kever was one of 13 women selected to the 2004 All-Big 12 singles team, announced by the conference office, Tuesday in the eighth annual Coaches All-Big 12 Conference team. The vote was conducted by the league head coaches.
A tie in the voting resulted in a 13-person Big 12 women's all-league group in singles. The women's team was comprised of three freshmen, four juniors and six seniors.
Kever, a freshman from Oklahoma City, Okla., made huge strides during her initial season with the Buffaloes as the No. 1 singles player throughout the spring campaign. With a 12-9 singles record since Jan. 24, Kever won 11 of those at the top singles slot. At one point during the spring, Kever won nine of 11 matches and was ranked as high as No. 64 nationally by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) singles rankings.
In doubles, Kever was part of 13 wins, including a 5-1 mark at No. 3 doubles.
Colorado is 12-10 on the season and finished the Big 12 conference season with a 6-5 mark good enough for a No. 5 seed in last weekend's conference tournament, CU's highest seed since 1999. The Buffs lost to No. 4 Baylor in the quarterfinals.
The Buffaloes will know their NCAA Tournament fate, Wednesday, May 5 at 2 p.m. when the committee determines the 64-team field.
