Serving Up Brilliance

In the running: Giannina Ong ’18 may soon become NCAA Woman of the Year.

Walk-on tennis player Giannina Ong ’18 earned a tribute no other SCU athlete did this year: She was nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year. The award honors graduating female student-athletes with outstanding records in athletics, academics, and community service—which is Ong to a tee, says coach Ben Cabell. She won big matches, led the team in community service by creating opportunities for members to act as role models through three different programs, and earned a Hackworth fellowship to study sports ethics with the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. She graduated with three majors: English, classics, and women’s and gender studies—with a minor in retail management. She also wrote for this fine mag.
