HADLEY, MA —Williams College first year Linda Shin (Johns Creek, GA) has been chosen as the NESCAC Co-Player of the Week for play ending Sunday, April 27th.
Shin's strong doubles and singles play helped propel Williams to a 7-2 victory over Bowdoin this weekend. In doubles, she and her sophomore partner Alex Stone (Short Hills, N.J.) came back from down 2-5 to win at No. 3 doubles 9-8 (8-6). With both No. 1 and No. 2 doubles matches already finished, her clutch play in the tiebreaker put Williams up 2-1 going into singles. Shin was the first singles match off-court, defeating Kate Winingham, 6-0, 6-1, to put Williams up 3-1 in the match. Shin also notched a second doubles victory against Colby this weekend.
