Monika Schmid finished her UAB career as one of the best players in Blazer tennis history, as she compiled a 105-33 singles record and 90-23 doubles record in her four years.

As a senior, Schmid teamed with partner Femke de Boer to finish as the No. 56 doubles tandem after posting a 14-5 dual match record. She finished the 2001-02 season with a 24-10 singles record and a 22-1 doubles record. Schmid was honored by being named to the All-Conference USA first team for the second time in her career.

In 2001, Schmid went 21-2 in dual singles action and 18-4 in doubles, helping UAB post an impressive 21-3 overall record. She partnered with Mirela Vladulescu to finish 17-4 in spring doubles competition and finished the season ranked No. 48 in the nation. Schmid was 29-7 in singles and 30-8 in doubles for the 2000-01 season and Second Team All-Conference USA honors.

As a sophomore, Schmid posted a 25-6 overall singles record on the second and was 17-3 at No. 2 singles. She was named all-conference first team for the first time in her career. In addition, Schmid posted a 19-7 overall doubles record, including a 14-4 dual match mark.

After tallying a 27-10 overall singles record in her freshman year, Schmid was named Conference USA Freshman of the Year and second team all-conference. She went 10-1 at the No. 1 position with partner Vladulescu and went 16-4 at the No. 2 spot in dual singles play.

As successful as Schmid was on the court, she was just as impressive in the classroom. She was a three-time member of the Commissioner's Honor Roll and made the Athletic Director's Honor Roll in 1998 and 1999.

Schmid graduated from UAB in 2002 in Health Promotion and is currently pursing her master's degree in Exercise Physiology.
