Natasha Subhash, a freshman on the Virginia women’s tennis team, has been named an All-America selection by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) it was announced on Tuesday. Subhash is one of 20 women’s singles players to earn the honor.

Seven players from the Atlantic Coast Conference earned All-America honors in singles to lead all conferences in players receiving the honor. The Pac-12 was second with five players selected for All-America honors in singles.

Subhash (Fairfax, Va.) is the fourth player in program history to earn All-America honors in singles, joining four-time singles All-America Julia Elbaba, three-time singles All-America and two-time NCAA singles champion Danielle Collins, and Lindsey Hardenberg in the recognition. Elbaba also earned All-America honors in doubles.

This season, Subhash posted a 26-6 record on the way to a season-high ranking of No. 10 nationally. She posted wins over 15 nationally-ranked players with 20 matches against nationally-ranked foes in her 32 matches as she played at the top of the lineup for the Cavaliers this season.

Included in her wins over nationally-ranked foes were victories over then No. 5 Alexa Graham of North Carolina, then No. 7 Sara Daavettila of North Carolina and then No. 16 Alana Smith of NC State. Her win over Smith clinched the dual-match victory for the Cavaliers at third-ranked NC State. It was the first win over a top-five team for Virginia since the 2016 season and only the fifth over a top-five team in program history.

Subhash also claimed the ITA Atlantic Region Championship in singles. She advanced to the semifinals of the Oracle/ITA Masters tournament and the second round of the main draw at the ITA All-American Championships.
