Chernaya, Stanic, Ros Honored by the Big South

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Campbell tandem of junior Karolina Chernaya (Tashkent, Uzbekistan) and sophomore Tamara Stanic (Budva, Montengro) were selected to the All-Big South Doubles Team, while senior Lordes Ros (Greensboro, N.C.) was recognized on the league's All-Academic Team.

Tallying a 7-4 overall and 7-2 mark in conference matches, Chernaya and Stanic were a difficult matchup for opponents in No. 1 doubles. The duo defeated Liberty, Charleston Southern, Radford, Coastal Carolina, Longwood, UNC Asheville, Winthrop and Presbyterian.

It was the second time that Chernaya received an all-conference doubles recognition as she partnered with Borislava Nikolova in 2012. The Tashkent, Uzbekistan, native was the 2011 A-Sun Freshman of the Year and also tabbed to the 2012 All-Big South Singles Team.

Ros totaled six wins on the season at No. 6, while registering a 5-3 mark in Big South action. She knocked off league-foes Charleston Southern, Radford, Longwood, UNC Asheville and Presbyterian.

Campbell starts the Big South Championships on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. against UNC Asheville in Rock Hill, S.C. The winner of the match is set to play in the semifinals on Friday at 2 p.m.
