New York Institute of Technology’s (NYIT) Lena Dimmer was voted the East Coast Conference (ECC) Player of the Year for the second straight season, as the league announced its all-conference teams and award winners on Thursday.

Dimmer posted a singles record of 13-3 this season, while also going 15-2 in doubles play. She won the ITA East Region Championship back in September which earned her a spot at the ITA Oracle Cup National Championships, where she reached the semifinals in singles, and the doubles final, alongside Alessia Rossetti.

Dimmer and Rossetti were both named All-ECC First Team.

Their teammate, Ivana Andric, was named the conference’s Rookie of the Year. In her first collegiate tennis season Andric has posted a 12-2 record in singles.

NYIT will play LIU Post in the ECC semifinals on Friday.
