GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson’s Ani Mijacika became the first Tiger in history to earn ACC Women’s Tennis Freshman-of-the-Year honors when the conference office announced the 2007 post-season awards on Thursday. The native of Makarsak, Croatia posted a perfect 11-0 singles record against league opponents this year while also compiling an 8-3 record in ACC doubles action. She helped lead Clemson, co-champions of the ACC regular season, to a 10-1 conference mark and a 19-3 overall record.
“I am really delighted and excited for Ani,” Head Coach Nancy Harris said. “She is very deserving of this award as she had a great freshman season. Ani has been a great ambassador for Clemson and I am so proud of her.”
With her selection, Mijacika also earned a spot on the 2007 All-ACC team, the sixth-ranked Tigers’ lone representative this season. She became the 16th different Clemson player to earn all-conference honors and the 11th under Harris. The Tigers have now had at least one player named All-ACC for six straight years and in 10 of Harris’ 11 years at the helm of the program.
All 12 league schools placed at least one student-athlete on the 2007 ACC Women’s Tennis All-Conference Team. Georgia Tech and Miami led all schools with three all-conference selections, followed by Florida State and North Carolina with two apiece. Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Maryland, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest rounded out the remaining 18-member unit with one pick each.
For the second straight year, Miami’s Audra Cohen was named ACC Player-of-the-Year, while Georgia Tech’s Bryan Shelton was voted the ACC Coach-of-the-Year.
