It's not much of a surprise to anyone who has followed Ronit Yurovsky's blossoming tennis career that she found immediate success in her first season at the University of Michigan.

Her play didn't go unnoticed.

Yurovsky, a Plum graduate, was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year.

A two-time PIAA champion and three-time WPIAL champion, Yurovsky is the fourth consecutive Michigan freshman to win the award.

This season, she has a team-best 28-7 record in singles and is ranked No. 48 in the country by the ITA.

She won 15 of 16 matches during one stretch and went 9-2 in conference matches, playing 10 times at No. 2 singles for the Wolverines.
