No. 9 Huba finished 13-4 in singles action this season and despite an injury, she concluded her career with 80 singles wins, the most in school history. The Ascona, Switzerland native earned all-conference honors all four years at FIT and ends her career as a two-time Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-American.

This season, she went 9-3 in the spring, earning five consecutive victories before her injury. Huba went 2-2 against nationally-ranked opponents and 3-2 against regionally-ranked opponents.

On Feb. 15, Huba earned a straight-set win in singles No. 1 versus Flagler College. The win was her 75th of the season, surpassing Natalia Ramos for most wins by a women’s tennis student-athlete.

“It was unfortunate that Kristina sustained a mid-season injury that hampered her final results,” said head coach Bill Macom. “Nonetheless, she had a great career at FIT and we are very proud of her accomplishments. She leaves Melbourne, Florida with the most singles wins in school history and fourth all-time with 79 doubles wins.”

She is also ranked No. 25 nationally in doubles with Natasa Vukovic and No. 4 in the South Region in singles.
