Sadie Hammond, a freshman from Belgrade, has been named a Southeastern Conference women’s tennis second-team all-star for her play at first singles for the University of Tennessee this season.

Hammond also became the fourth player in the program’s history named to the SEC All-Freshman team.

“There’s still so much more to achieve and improve on,” Hammond said in a news release. “I have my standards set higher than they were this season, and I’m looking forward to improving to be the best player I can be and give my all for my team and Tennessee.”

Hammond led Tennessee with 21 singles victories after starting the season by winning seven consecutive matches in straight sets and winning her flight at the Furman Fall Classic.

She also advanced to the semifinals of the Ohio Valley regional in singles.

In dual-match play, Hammond played first singles and first doubles throughout the season for the Volunteers and on March 16 was named SEC Player of the Week after scoring ranked-singles victories over No. 21 Andie Dikosavljevic of Auburn and No. 31 Andie Daniell of Alabama, the 2016 SEC Freshman of the Year.

Hammond leads Tennessee in ranked wins with seven in singles and three in doubles

Hammond is ranked 51st in singles and 86th in doubles with junior Eve Repic, according to the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association national seedings.

With her singles ranking, Hammond is in consideration for the NCAA Singles Championships, which will be held May 25-30 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
