As Kansas women’s tennis prepares to begin ITA Regional Championship competition, let’s take A Look Back at the program’s only NCAA Champions, Rebecca Jensen and Nora Koves. 

Rebecca Jensen and Nora KovesThe duo paired up in 1993 and won the Big Eight No. 1 Doubles Championship, but lost in the NCAA Quarterfinals that year.  The next season, they came back with a vengeance, defeating a duo from Mississippi to take home the NCAA Doubles title.  For their achievement, the pair was inducted into the Kansas Athletics Hall of Fame; the artifact presented here is their original Hall of Fame portrait, painted by Ted Watts.
