USTA thanks college seniors in ITA's #Set4Success campaign
The USTA National Campus hosted the 2019 NCAA Division 1 Tennis Championships in Orlando, Fla., providing the perfect stage to elevate the college game. The 2020 Championships, set to be held in Stillwater, Okla., were canceled due to COVID-19, cutting short the season and the careers of many seniors.
The USTA is proud to join in the ITA's #Set4Success campaign to thank college seniors with this message from some of our senior leadership, who double as former college players themselves. Hear from Chairman of the Board and President Patrick Galbraith (UCLA), Immediate Past President Katrina Adams (Northwestern), USTA National Campus General Manager Tim Cass (New Mexico) and USTA Eastern Executive Director and CEO Jenny Schnitzer (St. John's).
Many American players also got in on the act on social media, including John Isner (Georgia), James Blake (Harvard) and Kristie Ahn (Stanford). For more, check out the USOpen.org wrap of pro players who participated in the campaign.
#Set4Success: Collegiate seasons abruptly ended this spring due to COVID-19, and in-person graduations can't happen. Some seniors will choose to return. Others played their last match without knowing it. But no matter what lies ahead, tennis alums, coaches and ITA programs are coming together on May 6 to celebrate our sport's seniors, letting them know they are #Set4Success on the court and off.
Seniors, thank you!
