    Indianapolis, Ind.- As the UIC women's tennis team prepares to vie for its unprecedented tenth consecutive Horizon League Championship this weekend, three Flames players and UIC Head Coach Shannon Tully were recognized for their stellar work during the 2006 season at the annual Horizon League Tennis Championship Awards Banquet on Friday night.

    Senior Iris Jaklin (Fishbach, Austria/BORG-Birkfield) and junior Callan Smith (Leawood, Kan./Pembroke Hill) were selected to the All-Horizon League First Team, while senior Molly Smith (Leawood, Kan./Notre Dame de Sion) earned All-Horizon League Second Team honors.

    Along with UIC's three player honors, Tully was selected as the Horizon League Coach of the Year.

    The honor marks the second straight year that Jaklin was named to the All-Horizon League First Team and the third season in a row that she earned All-League recognition.

    Callan Smith earned All-League First Team accolades in her first year with the Flames as the team's No. 2 singles player and a part of UIC's No. 1 doubles duo with Corey Steven.

    Molly Smith earned her second consecutive All-Horizon League Second Team honor and the third in her stellar four-year career.

    Tully was named the league's Coach of the Year for the third time in the past four seasons. Earning the award for the second straight campaign, Tully guided UIC to a 7-0 record against conference foes in 2006 to run her five-year career mark against Horizon League opposition to a perfect 46-0.

    UIC will begin defense of its reign as nine-time Horizon League champions while in search of its eighth consecutive NCAA Tournament berth when the top-seeded Flames open the Horizon League Tennis Championships against No. 8 UW-Milwaukee at 8:00 a.m. Central at the North Central Tennis Complex in Indianapolis.
