Fraser and Hardenbergh Named All-ACC
CARY, N.C. – Virginia seniors Emily Fraser (Rye, N.Y.) and Lindsey Hardenbergh (Fairfax Station, Va.) were named to the 2012 All-ACC Women’s Tennis Team, conference officials announced Thursday in conjunction with the start of the ACC Tennis Tournament. It marks the first time since 1994 that two Cavaliers have been named All-ACC in the same season.
Hardenbergh was honored for the third consecutive year, joining Alison Cohen (1994-96) as the only Cavaliers to be named All-ACC three times. Currently ranked No. 38 nationally in singles, she has posted a 29-12 record, including a 9-2 mark in ACC play. Earlier this year she became Virginia’s all-time leader in career singles and doubles wins.
Fraser earns All-ACC honors for the second time in her career, becoming the fifth Cavalier to be named All-ACC multiple times. Currently ranked No. 21 nationally in singles, she reached a career-high No. 15 ranking earlier this season, the highest ranking for a Virginia player in 17 years. She is 26-12 this season, including an 11-4 record at the No. 1 position in dual match play.
Fraser and Hardenbergh have teamed for a 7-1 doubles record this season and are currently ranked No. 13 nationally in doubles.
The Cavaliers (16-6, 7-4 ACC) are the No. 5 seed in the 2012 ACC Tournament. Virginia meets No. 12 seed Wake Forest (3-17, 0-11 ACC) in a first round match at 9 a.m. Thursday at the Cary Tennis Center.
