Lin Named to the ITA All-America Team
SKILLMAN, N.J. – Junior Winston Lin has been named to the ITA Men’s All-America Team, as announced by the ITA Thursday, June 5.
The Williamsville, New York, native put together an astounding junior campaign, posting a 31-3 overall mark. During the spring dual season, Lin went a perfect 16-0 as the Lions top player.
The Ivy League Player of the Year and three-time first team All-Ivy League selection put together a 19-match win streak that saw him knock off five nationally ranked opponents.
During the fall season, Lin reached the Round of 16 at the ITA All-American Championships and the quarterfinals of the UTSA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships. His top showing came at the USTA/ITA Northeast Regional Championship, where he downed fellow All-America selection Denis Nguyen from Harvard for the title.
For all his accomplishments, Lin finished the year ranked No. 17 in the final ITA rankings, solidifying his selection as All-America. He is the first Columbia player selected to the All-America Team since 2004, when Oscar Chow earned that distinction.
