A junior on the women’s tennis team at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Ilana finished undefeated in doubles at the Colorado Invitational last weekend. The 20-year-old teamed with Buffaloes teammate Janezze Daneil to win her second-round match Thursday and paired with fellow junior Brigitte Beck to win her third round match Saturday and her fourth round match Sunday. Ilana also beat Natasha Munday of New Mexico, 6-3, 6-3, on Saturday in the singles silver draw. Ilana started her collegiate career at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo before transferring to Colorado. She grew up in the Highlands, attended Paul Revere Middle School and played her first three years of high school at Malibu, making the 18-and-under doubles final at Ojai, before transferring to Palisades as a senior. She played No. 1 singles for the Dolphins and led them to the City Section championship in 2014. To nominate your favorite Palisadian for Athlete of the Week, email email@example.com.
