Rossetti Named ITA Women's Player to Watch

SKILLMAN, N.J. (May 9, 2014) - Freshman Alessia Rossetti (Minusio, Switzerland) of the NYIT women's tennis team was recognized for her efforts on the court this spring as she was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Women's Player of the Watch for the East Region. 

Rossetti joined the Bears' squad in September 2013 but due to injury sat out most of the traditional season. Once cleared, Rossetti quickly made an impact for NYIT, going 7-2 in singles action and 5-5 in doubles action. She returned with a 6-0, 6-0 blanking to clinch the match victory over Dowling on October 16. She is undefeated at fourth, fifth, and sixth singles and earned her first win at second singles with a 6-0, 6-3 triumph over Iman Williams-Mulesa of Chestnut Hill in the NCAA East Region Championship match.

NYIT opens play at the NCAA Division II Championship on Wednesday, May 14 with a Round of 16 match against St. Mary's (Texas). First serve is scheduled for 8 a.m. at Sanlando Park in Altamonte Springs, Fla.
