KALAMAZOO, Mich. - For the first time since the 2008-09 season, Western Michigan women's tennis has been honored with a Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District V selection, as senior Nini Sujashvili earned the honors for the first time in her career.  Sujashvili is the first Bronco women's tennis player to earn the honor since 2009 when Kerstin Pahl was honored, and is just the fourth in program history.

Sujashvili, a double-major in Psychology and Sociology who has maintained a 3.97 GPA over the course of her college career, was a force at the top of the singles line-up for the Broncos this season, establishing career-highs in wins, No. 1 singles wins, and MAC wins.  She finished with a 22-16 overall record in singles play, including a dominant 15-7 mark at the No. 1 singles position.  Sujashvili tied her previous career-best with a 5-3 record against MAC opponents, and was at her best in the final weeks of the season, winning seven of her final 10 matches of the year.  

The senior from Tbilisi, Georgia was also a dominant doubles player, posting a 24-12 doubles record that ranked behind just the record of her most typical doubles partner, Tracy Kuhle.  Sujashvili was a dominant 16-4 in dual match doubles, combining with Kuhle to record an 11-3 dual match doubles mark.  The duo went 4-2 against MAC competition in doubles play.
