Kyle McPhillips Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of Week

May 1, 2013

Freshman Kyle McPhillips (Willoughby, Ohio/Andrews Osborne Academy) of the UCLA women's tennis team was named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week (Apr. 22-28).

McPhillips became the seventh women's tennis player in school history to take home the Pac-12 Singles Championship, downing Stanford's Krista Hardebeck on Sunday's in the championship match. McPhillips, the tournament's eighth seed, turned in perhaps the most dominating performance ever in the women's championship in Ojai, winning the final 11 games of the match in a 6-1, 6-0 victory over the third-seeded Hardebeck. McPhillips was never broken in the match, converting her first match point when Hardebeck sent a backhand into the net. It marked the fifth victory of the tournament for McPhillips, who also knocked off the tournament's top seed, Zsofia Susanyi of Cal, in Friday's quarterfinals. McPhillips became the first Bruin player to win the main draw singles title in Ojai since Yasmin Schnack in 2010, and she is the first UCLA freshman to capture the title since Sara Walker in 2000.

This is McPhillips' first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of her career.

Also nominated: B.B. Bates, Softball; Erynne Lee, W. Golf; Kylie Price, W. Track & Field.
