TALLAHASSEE, Fla.– Coming off a notable four-match winning streak this weekend, the No. 13 Florida State women’s tennis team (10-7, 4-2) received good news Tuesday, April 6 as senior Lauren McCreless was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Performer of the Week.
“It’s great for Lauren to get recognized from the conference,” FSU Head Coach Jennifer Hyde said. “The ACC is one of the toughest in the nation and to be recognized in the league is very special. There have been several weeks she has been nominated for this honor and it’s great she finally got it.”
No. 20 McCreless became FSU’s all-time career singles wins leader last Friday as she defeated No. 64 Martina Pavelec 7-5, 6-1 of Wake Forest to earn her 96th triumph. The Ogden, Utah native went on to dominate NC State’s No. 68 Sandhya Nagaraj 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday.
So far this season the `Nole has trumped a total of nine ranked singles players and posted a record of 21-9. Doubles has also been a success for McCreless as she has won the last seven of her ten matches.
The Garnet and Gold will honor McCreless and fellow senior Jessica Sucupira Sunday, April 11th as the Seminoles host Maryland at 12 p.m.
