Melissa Estremera and Shanice Mendoza Tapped as Skyline All-Stars

New York, NY--- The Sage Colleges' women's tennis team had a pair of performers honored on Monday with the release of the 2016 Skyline Conference All-Star Team. Graduate performer Melissa Estremera (Millbrook, NY/Millbrook) and junior Shanice Mendoza (North Plainfield, NJ/North Plainfield) were both named to the Second Team for their efforts in leading the Gators back to the Skyline Conference Tournament.

Sage went 7-7 on the season and posted a 4-3 effort in the Skyline Conference, garnering a No. 4 seed in the league's tournament. The Gators fell in the semifinals to top seeded Farmingdale State College, the eventual league champions.

Estremera had an impressive final season with the Gators as she went 8-4 on the year in singles play, while holding down the No. 2 spot on the singles ladder. She went 6-1 in Skyline Conference matches in singles and also played at No. 2 doubles this season. She went 6-5 in doubles this season, while serving as a team co-captain. A year ago, she earned the 2015 Skyline Conference Sportsmanship in women's tennis. She was named to the Skyline Conference Weekly Honor Roll once during the season this year for her efforts.

Shanice Mendoza, a junior for the team this season, was a newcomer on the courts for Sage in 2016. She led the Gators with her 9-4 singles record, while playing at No. 6 singles. She was also 6-1 in Skyline Conference singles action and also played at No. 3 doubles for the team. She added a 6-5 record in doubles in 2016.
