(Patrick) #1

If we can stay healthy, this might be the year that Tennis turns it around.

Dimitrova begins the season as the No. 85 rated player by the ITA and is one of just four American Athletic Conference players to crack the top-100 list.

Dimitrova burst onto the scene as a freshman, compiling a 15-3 overall record and an 8-2 mark in dual play while competing from the No. 1 singles position. The Padardzhik, Bulgaria, native posted a 7-1 mark in the fall of her rookie campaign and tallied a win in her flight finals at the Rice Invitational to begin her career.

Dimitrova’s play during the 2016-17 campaign earned her The American Conference Co-Freshman of the Year award and All-American Conference honors.
