Palisades alum Caroline Vincent Named 2022 ITA Ann Lebedeff Leadership Award Winner

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association “ITA” is pleased to announce Army’s Caroline Vincent as the 2022 ITA Ann Lebedeff Leadership Award Winner as endowed by Billie Jean King. 

“Caroline is a championship human being on and off the court, embodying what is great about college tennis,” said ITA CEO Dr. Timothy Russell. “Caroline has exhibited leadership that follows in the footsteps of both Billie Jean King and Ann Lebedeff and exemplifies how tennis is a leader in the world of intercollegiate athletics. We congratulate Caroline and wish her well, knowing that she will continue to do great things.”

As a four year starter and current team captain of the Army Women’s Tennis team, Vincent will be honored with a postgraduate scholarship and special recognition at the ITA Awards Weekend in New York later this year. Additionally, the Army Women’s Tennis team will be awarded a $1,000 donation from the ITA in her honor. 

Coming out of high school (Palisades Charter High School- Coached by Sean Passan & Bud Kling), Vincent was a highly-touted recruit who had multiple Division I scholarship offers available to her. However, for Vincent, her decision to attend Army was an easy one as she knew here she would continue to work towards goals larger than herself while fulfilling her passions of public service and tennis. 

On the court, Vincent’s career at Army was special in and of itself. Earning First Team All-Patriot League honors this season, Vincent has also earned Second Team All-Patriot League honors in 2021, Patriot League Doubles Team of the Year honors in 2021, and helped her team to a Patriot League title and NCAA tournament appearance in 2022.
