Records, championships, awards decorate Tomasetti’s shortened NAU tennis career | Local


Tomasetti ended her junior season ranked No. 110 in the country and elevated to a program all-time high of No. 44 this spring.

She defeated four nationally ranked opponents between the fall and spring seasons, including a win against Pennsylvania’s Iuliia Bryzgalova, who was ranked No. 13 in the most recent poll prior to the season’s cancellation. In her last two seasons, Tomasetti notched eight total victories against nationally ranked players.

But more than the individual accolades, Tomasetti leaves as a Big Sky champion.

“The championship will be the memory that will be the most present in my mind,” Tomasetti said. “Last year, if we didn’t win Big Sky, I thought we still had next year — which is not the case — so I’m happy we achieved everything we did last year. We were so close as a team, and this year we were close, too. All of us believed we could win again.”

The Lumberjacks, who were picked as the unanimous favorite to repeat as conference champions, were undefeated in conference play at 2-0 this spring before the abrupt end.

‘TRUST THE PROCESS’

Her Lumberjacks story started with visiting her brother, Fabio, in Flagstaff during his lone season as a member of the men’s tennis team in 2013-14, and ends with departing as the most decorated player in Northern Arizona women’s tennis history.
