New Orleans - The Tulane duo of junior Klara Vyskocilova and senior Emma Levy have been recognized by Conference USA for their outstanding singles performances during the 2012-13 campaign as Vyskocilova was named to the All C-USA first team and Levy was tabbed to the all-league second team.

"I'm extremely proud of Klara and Emma for being voted to the all-conference teams by the league's coaches," Tulane head coach Terri Sisk said. "It is indicative of how hard they worked this year to be chosen for these accolades. They are both very deserving of these awards and they are true examples of what hard work and discipline will accomplish."

A native of Klatovy, Czech Republic, Vyskocilova is in her first season with the Green Wave after transferring to Tulane from Clemson prior to the season. Vyskocilova is the second straight TU singles player to receive All C-USA first team accolades, joining former Wave standout Mariam Kurdadze who was a first team selection last season, and Vyskocilova is the eighth player in the program's history to earn All C-USA first team accolades.

Vyskocilova played the top spot on both singles and doubles and logged a 19-8 singles record and 11-10 doubles mark. She ranked among the nation's top singles players the entire season, including as high as No. 58, and sported a 12-6 dual record, all at No. 1, and was 4-5 against ranked players. Her biggest win came against the nation's No. 31 ranked player and nine of her 12 dual wins came in straight sets. Vyskocilova was named the C-USA Athlete of the Week on March 19. In doubles action, she was 5-5 with freshman Ipek Birol at the top doubles spot.

Levy, who hails from Princeton Junction, N.J., is a four-time selection to the All C-USA second team. She leads the squad with a 24-8 singles record, including a 17-4 dual record, and has currently won 14 straight singles matches. Levy has produced a 19-6 overall doubles record with three different partners this season, including an 11-3 dual mark with a 9-5 mark with junior Jenny Hois. Levy has won 92 career singles matches and 84 doubles contests.

 

 

Vyskocilova and Levy helped lead the Green Wave to a 17-7 overall record and a season-best No. 38 national ranking.
