Kim, Cohn Headline 2022 All-SCAC Women's Tennis

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - No. 14 Trinity University Women's Tennis rode its return to the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference throne to a strong showing on the 2022 All-SCAC list released Wednesday.

Tiger rookie Olivia Kim (Phoenix, Ariz. / Desert Mountain) put together a strong collegiate debut this season which culminated in the SCAC Newcomer of the Year award. Kim has battled an strong slate of opponents this season with eight of her matches between lines one and two of singles were against regionally-ranked players.

Head Coach Drew Cohn notched his first SCAC Coach of the Year honor as he led the Trinity women's program to a 14-8 record and a consistent top-20 national ranking from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association for most of the season while playing one of the nation's toughest schedules.

A second Tiger first-year, Ruth Hill (Abilene, Texas / Abilene) joined her season-long partner in Kim as a second All-SCAC first-team singles player at 14-6 on the season, along with making up one of two Trinity doubles teams to receive first-team honors as the rookie duo went 16-4 in line-two play this year.

This season's line-one duo of senior Megan Flores (Houston, Texas / Clear Lake) and sophomore Cate Cushing (Colleyville, Texas / Colleyville Heritage) earned the other first-team doubles nod as the Tigers' anchor in the early session, amassing a 16-6 record in first-flight competition.

Sophomore Elodie Richard (Allen, Texas / Allen) rounded out Trinity's All-SCAC honorees as a second-team singles selection. Richard joined Hill with double-digit singles victories this season on a 12-6 record, including a 6-0 mark between her contests in the first, third and fourth lines of singles action.

Cohn's SCAC Coach of the Year selection is thanks in large part to his guidance of the program back to a SCAC Championship through a dominant showing against Southwestern University two weeks ago in Kerrville, Texas. Below are the SCAC All-Tournament honorees:

Singles
Olivia Kim
Cate Cushing
Ruth Hill
Megan Flores

Doubles
Megan Flores / Cate Cushing
Olivia Kim / Ruth Hill
Elodie Richard / Ellie Hughes
