The tennis season isn’t even officially over yet, but that hasn’t stopped first-year Alyssa Rudin from making her mark on UChicago as this year’s female Rookie of the Year. 

Back in March, Rudin played a part in UChicago’s third place finish at the ITA DIII National Team Indoor Championships, winning her matches against Pomona-Pitzer, Sewanee, and Wash U, along with doubles wins against the latter two schools. Rudin was a strong contributor to the Maroons’ performance at the 2017 UAA Championships.  Rudin won all six of her matches across the weekend, esrning Second Team All-UAA honors.

Rudin concluded her season at the NCAA DIII Team Championship, helping UChicago reach the quarterfinals with wins in singles and doubles.
