Ladyman Named Second Team All-Conference
April 30, 2001
Memphis, Tenn.- - Senior Christina Ladyman, a native of Perth, Australia, wrapped up her Lady Tiger tennis career with her fourth consecutive second-team all-conference honor, Monday.
Ladyman leaves Memphis with the second-most singles wins in school history, 94. Annika Ewaldson holds the mark for career singles wins with 100.
This is Ladyman's fourth straight second-team honor in C-USA. The senior, who will graduate Friday, also received the Elma Roane Award last season.
The Australia-native has played at No. 1 singles since coming to Memphis in January of 1998. Ladyman came to Memphis thinking she was just going to stay for one semester. She stayed and after her junior season, passed up early admission to physical therapy school in Australia to return to the Tiger tennis team for her senior season. Her decision to return helped Memphis finish its fall season ranked in the top 10 in the Southeast Region.
The Lady Tigers struggled with depth during the 2001 spring season though, finishing the year with an 11-15 mark. Ladyman was 14-12 at No. 1 singles and 16-10 when teamed with sophomore Sabrina Lindemann at No. 1 doubles.
Ladyman will graduate, Friday, with a degree in human movement sciences.
