HAMDEN, Conn. – Former Griffin tennis player Jennifer Lu , now a rising senior at Quinnipiac University, has been chosen to compete in the singles side at the 2017 Oracle/ITA Masters at Pepperdine University in Malibu from September 21-24.
The tournament hosts 32 elite men’s and women’s singles players, along with 32 mixed doubles teams competing for championships. Each collegiate conference gets one player into the singles draw per gender. It is usually the Conference Player of the Year from the year before unless that player graduates and it goes to the highest ranking underclassmen.
As a sophomore, Lu was a unanimous selection to the All-MAAC First Team in the No. 2 singles spot and was named to the All-MAAC First Team in the No. 3 doubles spot with partner Layla Rodriguez (Rancho Santa Margarita, California). Lu recorded 36 wins during the 2016-17 campaign and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2016-17 MAAC Tournament.The
