Berkeley -- Lynn Chi earned her first Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week award after a spectacular weekend at the NCAA Singles Tournament in Athens, Ga. The 24th-ranked sophomore posted four upsets - including a win over the No. 1 player in the nation - in the NCAA Singles Championship to reach the final on May 26.

Normally Cal's No. 4 singles player, the Cal sophomore upset Michigan's ninth-ranked Emina Bektas in the first round, UCLA's eighth-ranked Jennifer Brady in the round of 16, North Carolina's top-ranked Jamie Loeb in the quarterfinals and Georgia State's 22nd-ranked Abigail Tere-Apisah in the semifinals en route to her first championship appearance. Chi - who ended the season with a team-high 38 singles wins - wound up with All-America honors and as the NCAA runner-up after falling to Virginia's Danielle Collins in the title match.
