Landis named tennis team MVP

MOUNT VERNON — Aly Landis, of Xenia, was named the Mount Vernon Nazarene University women’s tennis team Most Valuable Player last month. The freshman won the most matches on the first-year women’s team with a 12-7 overall record.

“Aly proved time and time again that she was a humble competitor accumulating more wins than anyone else on our women’s team roster,” MVNU coach Daniel Doan said. “She was a great role model to her teammates as she approached every match with the same composure and earned all of her wins through effort and poise. She is an excellent student-athlete and we are looking forward to having her come back for our next full season this coming Fall.”

MVNU, an NAIA Division II program, disbanded its college women’s tennis team in the late 1980s, but reinstated the program initially as a club team three years ago before joining the 10-team Crossroads League in 2018.
