Charlotte freshman Lisa Grosselius (Molndal, Sweden) was today named the Atlantic 10 Conference Women's Tennis Rookie of the Week. This marks the fifth-straight week one of Charlotte's male or female tennis players has been named to one of the league's weekly awards.
Grosselius finished another perfect 2-0 week in singles and doubles play as Charlotte pushed its win streak to five straight matches with a pair of home wins. She and doubles partner, junior Anna Ekelund, improved to 13-1 together this season, winners of a team-best six straight doubles matches. Grosselius has also captured four-straight singles wins with her pair of victories this week. She is 11-7 in singles play this season, with a 9-2 mark at number four.
Teammates Alexandra Zinn (February 20) and Andrea Rivera(February 27) were named A-10 Player of the Week already this season, with male student-athletes Jack WIlliams (March 6) and Kamil Khalil (March 12) earning Men's Tennis Rookie honors previously this year.
The women program currently sits at 12-1 so far this season. The women will travel to Charleston on Tuesday morning for an neutral-site Atlantic 10 Conference match versus Massachusetts at 10 a.m. The women will then be home for a final, five-match home stand, which begins Saturday at 11 a.m. against UNC Wilmington.
