WOMEN'S COLLEGE TENNIS: Batliner earns All-America honorable mention honors

IUS freshman 15-3 at No. 3 singles this season

NEW ALBANY — IU Southeast freshman Whitney Batliner has been named an NAIA All-America honorable-mention selection.

Batliner, a Floyd Central product, is the first IU Southeast women’s tennis player to earn All America recognition since Tyla Wells was named to the All-American second team in 2003.

Batliner finished the season with a No. 3 singles record of 15-3. She was named to the All-Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference team.

Batliner is the only player from the KIAC to be selected to any of the three All-America teams.

The Grenadiers won their 15th straight KIAC regular-season and tournament titles in 2013-14 and finished the year with an overall record of 14-7.
