Marin Salcedo Named To A-10 Women’s Tennis Second Team
NEWPORT, NEWS, Va. – St. Bonaventure senior Manuela Marin Salcedo was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference Women's Tennis All-Conference Second Team Thursday, in voting conducted by the league's head coaches.
The honor marks the third time in her four-year career that Marin Salcedo has garnered an All-Conference nod. She previously was named to the A-10 Second Team in both her freshman and sophomore years.
Marin Salcedo played a majority of not only her 2011-12 season as Bona's No. 1 singles player, but also of her entire career, routinely matching up with the opposing team's best player.
She posted an overall record of 23-16 on the campaign, with seven of her nine singles wins coming out of that No. 1 position. In A-10 play, she posted five wins – two in singles and three in doubles.
Her 23 overall wins were second-best on the Bona roster, and her 14 doubles victories led the Brown and White. She posted a 14-6 doubles record on the year, with all but one match occurring at the No. 2 doubles slot.
Marin Salcedo has also achieved tremendously off the court, as this year she was the recipient of the 2012 Dr. Mary A. Hamilton Woman of Promise Award. The award is presented annually to St. Bonaventure's top female journalism and mass communication senior who excels in and out of the classroom and sets a good example for her peers.
In addition to her journalism and mass communication major, she is pursuing minors in English and Italian. Marin Salcedo plans to obtain a master's in photojournalism at Syracuse University beginning in the fall.
