AUBURN, Ala. -- After a historic regular season, Auburn women’s tennis had four athletes selected to the All-SEC team, the conference office announced Wednesday. This marks the third-straight year Auburn has had a player selected as First Team All-SEC.
"We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments and well deserved acknowledgements that these ladies have achieved,” said Auburn head coach Lauren Spencer. “They have put in the hard work every day to excel themselves and this team to the next level. It speaks volumes of their character and commitment to building a winning culture here at Auburn. We look forward to the postseason and are excited to see what each player on our team can achieve as we strive to be one of the premier programs in the nation.”
Sophomore Andie Dikosavljevic, who is ranked No. 20 in the latest Oracle/ITA National Singles Rankings, was selected First Team All-SEC for the first time in her career after compiling 24 wins in singles and 18 in doubles. Playing mostly out of the No. 1 spot, Dikosavljevic had 12 wins over ranked opponents.
Alizee Michaud was also selected to the First Team after finishing the regular season ranked No. 29 in the ITA/Oracle singles rankings and No. 7 in doubles. The sophomore from Florida will head into the NCAA Tournament with a 20-5 record in singles with seven wins over ranked opponents.
Auburn’s all-time leader in career combined victories, Pleun Burgmans was selected Second-Team All-SEC for the second straight season. This year she paired with Michaud to form the No. 7-ranked doubles team in the nation. The duo finished the regular season 12-4 (9-4 SEC) with seven wins over ranked opponents, including Florida’s No. 3 Kourtney Keegan and Brooke Austin. This is the fourth time she has earned all-conference honors, a first in program history.

With 26 wins in singles, Griffin is now tied for eighth all-time in single season victories.
