“The team’s success last season would not have been possible without Kelly’s MVP performance. Her results in the SoCon Championship made the committee’s choice of Kelly being named Most Outstanding Performer an easy one. She led the team in so many memorable victories including the clinching win versus Oklahoma. Another All-Southern Conference First Team performance will be needed for the Cougars to win a fifth-straight SoCon title.” – CofC Director of Tennis Angelo Anastopoulo
