Aug. 30, 2015
SKILLMAN, N.J. – Julia Elbaba (Oyster Bay, N.Y.) was honored at the ITA Awards Luncheon this weekend when she was named to the ITA All-Star team for her performance on the court during the 2014-15 season.
Twenty-six elite collegiate tennis players were named to the 2015 ITA Collegiate All-Star Team, a collection of the most accomplished student-athletes from each of the college divisions during the 2014-15 season. Oracle and the ITA recognized these honorees, along with the ITA/Arthur Ashe Jr. National Leadership and Sportsmanship Award winners, at the Oracle/ITA Outing & Awards Luncheon held at the West Side Tennis Club. USTA Eastern will participate as an event partner.
Inaugurated in 1984, the ITA All-Star Team honors the nation’s top-ranked men’s and women’s players from the year-end Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings and spans the five competitive divisions: NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior & Community Colleges. Also receiving honors are the winners of the 2014 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships and 2015 NCAA Division I Championships.
Elbaba won the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Singles Championship in the fall of 2014. A three-time ITA All-American, Elbaba has recorded 30+ singles wins in each of her three seasons at UVa. This season, she posted a 30-7 record en route to securing the No. 5 Oracle/ITA National Singles Ranking, a personal-best finish in the final rankings.
Elbaba also set a new mark for the Cavaliers when she became the first player in program history to ascend to the No. 1 national singles ranking, a ranking she held in February and March.
