Hudson Valley Community College tennis standout Jenna Brophy (Greenwich/Greenwich) defeated Grace Wills of Brookdale Community College (7-5, 3-6, 6-4) in the NJCAA ladies finals to win the #1 Singles Flight National Championship on Friday morning at Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, NY. Brophy fell behind 4-1 in the third set, but battled back to win the next five games to earn the victory.
Coach Denise Potenza commented, "Jenna pulled out two come-from-behind wins in the third set of the semifinals and finals to win the Championship. She stayed focused and determined in all of her matches this week."
As a team, Hudson Valley Community College finished in fifth place despite not having a #6 singles player and #3 doubles team.
Potenza added, "I'm very proud of the whole team's performance this week. Everyone played some of their best tennis, and we had a very strong showing on the biggest stage."
