Apparently freshman Connie Hsu doesn’t need to step onto the court to get accolades.

Despite not competing with the Penn tennis team this past weekend, Hsu was ranked the No. 4 incoming freshman in the country on Wednesday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

The honor came nine days after Hsu took the top singles championship in her first college tournament.

As a result, Hsu — who was the only Ivy player to make the list — will participate in the pre-qualifying tournament at the ITA All-American Championships.

Meanwhile, the Quakers once again brought home a championship over the weekend when they competed in the Columbia Invitational in New York.

After sweeping their first match 8-0, senior Alexa Ely and freshman Jaime Yapp-Shing triumphed in the doubles bracket to win the tournament’s doubles title.

Ely also reached the semifinals of the Flight A singles bracket. Teammate Daniela DePaoli made it to the finals of the Flight B singles bracket after defeating Penn sophomore Emma Whitfield in the semis, 6-0, 6-2.
