Zoë Scandalis Finishes 2014 As ITA All-American|
June 4, 2014
USC junior Zoë Scandalis has locked in on another set of high honors for the 2014 season, having secured status as an ITA All-American for the second time in her Trojan career. Scandalis finishes her junior year ranked No. 20 in the nation in singles to score another set of ITA All-American singles honors. She also boasts top-20 status in doubles as half of the nation's No. 18 doubles team alongside partner Giuliana Olmos.
Scandalis' 2014 ITA All-American honor goes along with her 2012 ITA All-American status earned as a freshman. This junior season was a strong one for Scandalis, who also picked up All-Pac-12 First Team honors this year and reached the Pac-12 Singles title match at the conference tournament in April. She'd finish out the season with a 23-11 overall singles record, including a 14-5 mark in dual matches. She entered the NCAA Tournament ranked #19 in the nation in singles and #11 in doubles with partner Olmos, with whom she won the Freeman Memorial Doubles Championship earlier in the year. Along the way, Scandalis also was a two-time Pac-12 Player of the Week and reached the ITA/Riviera All-American Doubles final with Olmos.
Scandalis leads a powerful group of Women of Troy also standing tall in the final 2014 ITA rankings. USC boasts a grand total of five Trojans in the singles top-100, and four duos on the doubles list. Scandalis, Olmos, Brynn Boren, Zoë Katz and Sabrina Santamaria all finish up the year on both singles and doubles lists, while senior Kaitlyn Christian pops up in two spots in the doubles rankings. A three-time Pac-12 Doubles Champion -- twice with Santamaria and then winning this season with partner Olmos -- Christian finishes her Trojan career as possibly the most accomplished doubles player in the collegiate game.
