OGDEN, Utah — Sacramento State freshman Jennifer Nguyen was named the Big Sky Conference Women's Tennis Player of the Week, it was announced today. The honor is the first for Nguyen during her career and marks the second time a Hornet has won the award in as many weeks.
Nguyen, a native of Wollongong, Austria, was undefeated last week in singles and doubles play while helping the Hornets to a pair of Big Sky victories. Nguyen was victorious at No. 2 against both Montana and Montana State over the weekend. Her wins were part of a team effort which extended Sacramento State's Big Sky winning streak to 99 consecutive matches. Her match on Monday against No. 23 UC Irvine was unfinished.
In doubles play, she teamed with Katharina Knoebl to win all three matches. The duo won 8-5 against Montana, 8-6 against Montana State and 9-7 at UC Irvine.
The Hornets will have the opportunity to earn their 100th-straight victory over a Big Sky team this weekend when they host Northern Colorado on Sunday, March 31, at Rio Del Oro Racquet Club at 9 a.m. The team will also meet North Dakota at 2 p.m.
