RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State sophomore Joelle Kissell was named to the 2012 All-ACC Women's Tennis Team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford. The honor is the first for Kissell, who is currently ranked nationally in both singles and doubles action.
Kissell, who has compiled a 15-8 record on the season, is ranked No. 31 in singles action in the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll. She has defeated seven ranked opponents this season, including No. 16 and No. 20.
