TEMPE, Ariz. — The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its 2019 All-Americans Thursday and the University of Central Oklahoma had three honored for their outstanding seasons.
Adel-Byanu Abidullina, Isabella Dunlap, and Paola Landin were all honored. Abidullina and Dunlap were both tabbed as All-Americans in singles while Dunlap and Landin were announced as All-Americans in doubles.
"I'm really proud of each one of these young women for their hard work and their efforts," UCO head tennis coach Jaron Maestas said. "They put in so much hard work day in and day out for not just the entire season but in the offseason too. They deserve to be recognized for that and I'm glad they have been."
Central Oklahoma now has nine all-time All-Americans with the three selections this season. UCO has had four All-Americans in the last two seasons.
Abidullina earned both Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association co-Player of the Year honors as well as MIAA Freshman of the Year this season. She had a 22-5 record and ended the year as the second-ranked singles player in the country.
Dunlap, who was the ITA national runner-up in the fall, went on to earn the ITA National Freshman of the Year award just last week. She went 24-9 this season in singles play and 18-11 in doubles. Dunlap finished the season ranked fifth in the nation.
Landin went 18-11 in doubles with Dunlap. The duo finished the season ranked ninth nationally.
Central Oklahoma went 19-5 this season and made the NCAA Division II Women's Tennis National Championship Round of 16.
