HOLLAND — Traverse City native Amanda Bandrowski earned All-America honors from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
Hope teammate Claire Hallock also drew the honor. The two seniors are the third Flying Dutch pair to be All-Americans in the same season.
Bandrowski and Hallock are All-Americans after finishing eighth and 17th, respectively, in the ITA’s final NCAA Division 3 singles rankings.
They are two of only 25 singles All-Americans in all of Division 3 this season.
Bandrowski joins Hallock, Colleen Sandro (1986) and Audrey Coates (1994) as the only singles All-American players for Hope.
Hope is one of seven Division 3 schools with multiple All-Americans.
