ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake freshman Maddie Johnson (Onalaska, Wis.) has been tabbed as the MVC Women's Tennis Player of the Week. The recognition is the first for a Bulldog this season and the initial accolade for Johnson during her Drake career.
Johnson turned in a 5-1 combined singles/doubles record this past week, sparking the Bulldogs to a 2-1 mark.
In Drake's 6-1 victory versus Central Arkansas last Saturday (March 2), she paired with freshman Lea Kozulic (Varazdin, Croatia) to clinch the doubles point at the No. 2 position, before a win at the No. 5 singles slot.
Johnson then added a triumph at the No. 5 singles hole in the second of two matches on the day against Northern Illinois.
She capped her week with a pair of victories versus Nebraska Omaha on Sunday (March 3), including a win at the No. 2 singles position.
On the season, Johnson owns a 31-13 combined singles/doubles ledger, including a team-best 17-6 singles mark.
Johnson and the Bulldogs (6-6) return to action on Friday (March 8) with an in-state showdown at Iowa State. Match time is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
