Tennis postseason honors

After a standout season for the New Haven women’s tennis team that finished with an early loss in the Northeast-10 (NE-10) playoffs, four players have earned postseason honors.

Freshman Valentinna Ferrarini earned All-Conference Third Team in the singles, while also earning a selection to the All-Rookie team and finishing as the runner up for the Rookie of the Year award. She finished the year with a 9-3 overall record in singles and a 7-2 record as the No. 1 single.

Ferrarini also paired with sophomore Karim Carreras to earn All-First Team honors in the doubles. The pair were undefeated during the regular season, going 6-0 in doubles matches this year.

Carreras was also named to the All-Conference Third Team for her performances in the singles this season, posting a 6-2 record.

The final two Chargers honored were seniors Alexa Orlando and Kacie Banks for their performances in the doubles. The two posted a 4-3 overall record, good enough to earn them a spot on the All-Conference Third Team for that position.
