College of Charleston’s Christin Newman added another award to her already impressive academics and athletics resume, being named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 4 Women’s At-Large First Team as chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Newman became the first women’s tennis player in school history to be named Southern Conference player of the year as a senior. She led the nationally-ranked Cougars to three consecutive SoCon women’s tennis championship titles and NCAA tournament appearances from 2011-13.
Newman compiled 59 singles and 60 doubles victories throughout her career after transferring from Virginia Tech in the fall of 2010.
