Hartzell (Oshkosh, Wis.) joins elite company being named to the All-NACC singles team for the fourth time in her career.   In her final fall season, Hartzell put together another strong season at the top flight for the Sabres.  Hartzell went 10-5 at the No. 1 flight for Marian and boasted an 8-2 mark in conference matches.  Her biggest win during the fall portion of the season came against eventual regular-season champion Edgewood where she rallied after dropping the first set to win a three-set thriller 6-7 (2-7), 6-1, 10-8.  Entering the spring season, Hartzell sits in third on the program’s all-time wins list at 93 and needs just three victories to move up to second.  At the No. 1 singles flight, Hartzell needs just five victories to become the program’s winningest student-athlete at the top flight.
