The Ladies tennis program holds a unique place in Kenyon athletics history. The women have collected 15 North Coast Athletic Conference titles since the 1985-86 season and have participated in the NCAA Division III national tournament 18 times in the past 25 years. Three of those appearances led to national championships (1993, 1995, 1997) and four other appearances resulted in national runner-up finishes (1988, 1989, 1992, 1998).
The program, which started in the 1972-73 academic year, has produced 14 All-Americans, who collectively earned a total of 27 All-America awards. Highlighting that list of top-notch players are Caryn Cuthbert and Erin Hockman, who won the NCAA Division III doubles championship in 1998. During the 2006 season, Ashley Kriwinsky finished the season 28-5 and mowed through the NCAA singles tournament to the quarterfinal round, finishing the campaign with the No. 6 national ranking. In 2010, Prita Kidder and Amy Schlessman earned a trip to the national doubles tournament and advanced to the quarterfinals before bowing out.
At the conference level, the Ladies annually haul in their fair share of All-NCAC awards. In fact, a total of 13 Kenyon players earned the NCAC's Player of the Year award and seven were named the conference's Newcomers of the Year.
In addition to athletics success, the Kenyon women have reached remarkable levels of academic achievement. Three Ladies capped off their collegiate careers with NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships and a total of 29 Kenyon tennis players have been selected as ITA Scholar-Athletes. As a whole, the Ladies have been tabbed an ITA All-Academic team 11 times.
