Achong and Richardson Tabbed to ITA Collegiate All-Star Team

CORAL GABLES, Fla. Yet another elite accolade came in Monday morning for Daevenia Achong and Eden Richardson of the University of Miami women’s tennis team, as the duo officially earned ITA Collegiate All-Star Team recognition.

Achong and Richardson clinched the prestigious honor by finishing as the NCAA Doubles Championship runners-up.

There are a total of just 10 spots, held by nine different players, on the 2022 Division I ITA Collegiate All-Star Team.

This is the sixth time in Paige Yaroshuk-Tews’ illustrious 21-year tenure at least one Hurricane made the cut, including the third in a row. Estela Perez-Somarriba garnered the distinction in both 2019 and 2021, while no team was named in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with becoming the first Hurricane pair to reach the NCAA Doubles Championship title match since 1988, Achong and Richardson finished sixth in the ITA rankings, the best position for a Miami doubles team since 2014.

They registered a tremendous 29-11 ledger, including a 21-8 mark in the spring and a 15-7 record atop the lineup. Achong, a fourth-year junior, and Richardson, a fifth-year senior, went 11-5 versus ranked foes, including 5-3 versus top-15 tandems, and tallied three top-10 victories.

In addition to claiming ITA Collegiate All-Star Team status, Achong and Richardson also earned ITA All-America and First Team All-ACC plaudits. In addition, Achong received two ITA Southeast Region awards.
