RICHMOND, Va.- After a terrific season highlighted by a team-high 22 wins, senior Cindy Chala was named the ITA Atlantic Region Senior Player of the Year.
Chala was ranked in the ITA singles all year, reaching #57 at one point. She tallied five wins over top-90 opponents and a 12-5 record from the top spot in VCU's lineup.
Last week, Chala added to her list of accolades with her second straight Atlantic 10 Player of the Year award, and was one of three Rams named to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team.
Chala helped lead VCU to its ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, where she faced the top ranked player in the country.
