Stanford senior Nicole Gibbs is among those to be honored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association on Saturday as a member of the ITA Collegiate All-Star Team.
Featuring 20 of the nation's top student-athletes from tennis programs across the nation, the ITA All Star Team was inaugurated in 1984.
The All-Star Team features the nation's top-ranked men's and women's players from the year-end ITA College Tennis Rankings at the NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and JUCO levels, as well as winners of the 2012 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships and 2013 NCAA Division I Championships.
A number of other ITA All-Stars have gone on to excel on the pros tours such as former top 20 player Patty Fendick, a Stanford grad, also the current head women's tennis coach at the University of Texas.
Current pros who have been on past All-Star teams are the ATP World Tour doubles No. 1 Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, both of attended Stanford, and current top 100 WTA player Mallory Burdette of Stanford.
Many past members of the All-Star team remain involved in the game, including Laura Granville, the former Stanford standout who is currently the head coach of the Princeton women's tennis team.
Gibbs turned pro soon after winning her second consecutive NCAA singles title in May. Her first tournament as a pro was Wimbledon and she later won her first pro title at the ITF event in Yakima.
The Collegiate All-Star Team awards presentation takes place at the ITA Awards Luncheon hosted by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) during Arthur Ashe Kids' Day, immediately before the start of the US Open.
The luncheon is held in the President's Suite Dining Room at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, NY.
Gibbs finished the season ranked second in the ITA Division I Singles Rankings.
She is the fifth Stanford player to win multiple NCAA singles titles and with her NCAA doubles title in 2012, became the second player in Stanford history to win all three NCAA Championships in a career.
She was named the Honda Sports Award winner for tennis and has received ITA All-American honors for singles and doubles.
