The Jacksonville University women's tennis team earned six Atlantic Sun All-Conference honors after finishing the 2006-07 season with an 8-1 conference record and earning the program's second No. 1 seed in the A-Sun tournament as released on Thursday by the conference office.
Senior Emese Sulyos was named A-Sun "Player of the Year" and was named first team all-conference. Second year head coach Jarod Camerota was named Women's Tennis "Coach of the Year". Junior Lena Willi was also named first team all-conference and freshman Tatiana Soldatova earned second team all-conference honors and was named to the all-freshman team.
Sulyos, a four time first team selection, earned her second "Player of the Year" accolades after finishing with a 17-2 record on the season at the No. 1 position in dual matches. Sulyos, who was named "Freshman of the Year" and "Player of the Year" in 2004, has an 8-1 conference record this season and is currently on a 12-match winning streak. For her career, Sulyos has amassed a 74-9 record and a 21-3 mark in conference play.

"All the credit goes to the players," said coach Camerota. "We have worked really hard this season and it has paid off. I have learned a lot about coaching this year from my players and we have gotten better together."
Willi earned her second consecutive first team honors after going 19-3 at the No. 2 position and was perfect in conference play with a 9-0 record. She was named A-Sun "Freshman of the Year" and earned second team honors in 2005.
