Rock Valley College got off to a hot start at the NJCAA national tournament and never looked back as they rode that early momentum to a dominant national championship performance in Flushing Meadows, New York.
RVC tallied 33 team points, easily topping second place finisher, Mercer (New Jersey). Five Golden Eagles were named NJCAA All-Americans: Katy Kurilla (first team and tournament MVP), Nicole Beck (first team), Brianna Todaro (first team), McKenzie McCray (second team), and Alice Swanson (second team).
RVC head coach Steve Vee was named NJCAA Division III National Coach of the Year for the fourth time as this was the fourth time he has led a Rock Valley College tennis team to a national title. He led the men to titles in 2000 and 2002 and previously led the women to a national title in 2004.
This year's national championship marks the eighth in school history for RVC. RVC has also won national titles in men's golf (2001 and 2002) and volleyball (1996 and 1997).
