USTA Northern release

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Carleton College women’s tennis player Bridget Doyle (Fy./Mendota, Heights, Minn./Visitation) was recently recognized by USTA Northern during the group’s annual honors banquet. She received the Jerry Noyce Junior Sportsmanship Award given to the junior player who not only displays the finest qualities of sportsmanship during tournament play, but who also demonstrates exemplary conduct away from the court.

Prior to enrolling at Carleton, Doyle was ranked in the top 10 in the section in Girls 18s and represented USTA Northern at the Billie Jean King Jr. Team Tennis Tournament in San Diego in August 2008.

In 2009, Doyle was a member of the Fred Wells Tennis and Education Center (FWTEC) team which finished second at the 2009 Jr. Team Tennis Section Championships and won the 18s Advanced Sportsmanship Award. She also won the 2009 USTA Serves College Textbook Award, the 2008 Player Incentive Award and has been a multiple-time recipient of the Greater Twin Cities Tennis Association Scholarship.

She was a section winner of the Arthur Ashe Essay Contest in 2007, and has volunteered with the FWTEC after-school program.

 
“Bridget’s balance of competitiveness and level-headedness is unrivaled in USTA Northern,” said Marc Stingley, director of junior tennis at FWTEC. “Anyone would be hard-pressed to find an opponent who has a negative thing to say about her professionalism and attitude.”
