Entering Episcopal as a sophomore, Krusen immediately made an impact on the School’s tennis program.
The team won the ISL each of her three years and went undefeated in 1996. Krusen earned All-ISL and All-Met honors as a sophomore, junior, and senior as well as the Alexandria Sportsman’s Club Athlete of the Year in girls’ tennis. She earned the School Award for girls’ tennis her sophomore and junior year.
Krusen had a truly remarkable junior year. Going 26-0, she was ranked No. 73 nationally among 16-and-under players and was named the Washington Post All-Met Girls’ Tennis Player of the Year. “She is just turning into a beautiful tennis player,” Episcopal Coach Katherine Stewart told the Washington Post. “She is just so steady.”
Krusen continued her tennis career at Princeton University and was a member of the 2000 Ivy League championship team that posted 17 victories, setting a school record.
