Kristin Alotta, Williams College
The Intercollegiate Tennis Association's (ITA) Northeast Region Senior Player of the Year this spring, Alotta has a cabinet full of conference and national awards from her time at Williams. She earned All-NESCAC all four years, landing on the First Team Singles in each of the last three, and is a three-time All-American.
Alotta was a part of the most successful period in the history of Williams women's tennis, helping her Eph squad win a NCAA title in every one of her four years. The senior captain owns the program record for the longest singles winning streak (41 matches), the most singles wins in a career (109), and the most career tennis wins combined (205).
Graduating this spring with a degree in psychology and political economy with a concentration in legal studies (3.58 GPA), Alotta achieved Academic All-NESCAC in 2011 and again in 2012 and was selected as a three-time ITA All-Academic team member, earning ITA Academic All-America in 2010.
Around town, Alotta shared her joy of tennis with the Williamstown Youth Center, offering tennis lessons to local children. She also participated in Williams' Girls and Women in Sports Day, helped out at the Williamstown Youth Field Day, and assisted in Snowfest, a youth community day.
