Forest, Va. -- For the first time in program history, University of Lynchburg women's tennis has an Old Dominion Athletic Conference player of the year.

Junior Christina Harris (Falls Church, Va.) won the honor along with a spot on the All-ODAC first team at No. 1 singles, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon with its annual postseason awards.

Lynchburg's No. 3 doubles team of senior Reagan Coon (Churchville, Va.) and freshman Alissa Anderson (Norfolk, Va.) also earned a spot on the first team.

Three Lynchburg singles players won second-team honors: Anderson at No. 3, sophomore Ellen Druebbisch (Jamestown, N.C.) at No. 5 and Coon at No. 6.

The four Hornets on the all-conference team further validates a record-setting season for Lynchburg women's tennis during which the team posted an 18-3 record, 11-1 in ODAC play, to shatter the single-season wins record. The Hornets reached the conference championship match for the first time in program history.

Harris also had a record-breaking season. The junior went 15-1 in dual-match singles play, all at the top flight, and broke the program's career singles wins record. She currently has 64 career victories.

Coon and Anderson were 8-2 in doubles play together, all at the No. 3 spot in the order.

Anderson enjoyed a spectacular freshman season, going 14-3 in singles play (10-2 at the No. 3 flight). She was 10-0 in regular-season ODAC play.

Druebbisch went 10-1 in singles matches and a perfect 8-0 at the fifth spot in the lineup.

Coon had a perfect senior season, tallying a 15-0 overall record in dual play and going 8-0 at No. 6.
