Illinois State freshman Mya Smith-Dennis, former Burnsville High star, received first team all-conference honors at No. 3 doubles in the Missouri Valley Conference. The award was presented April 27 at the MVC Tennis Awards Banquet in St. Louis, Mo. Despite limited play due to illness, Smith-Dennis teamed with Filip Miljevic, senior from Serbia, to achieve a 10-9 record in dual matches and went undefeated in the Conference. The Savage resident was a six-year letterman at No. 1 singles for the Blaze and a three-time state qualifier.
