Van Genechten Chosen As MVC Women's Tennis Player Of The Week
ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake freshman Evy Van Genechten (Antwerp, Belgium) has been named the MVC Women's Tennis Player of the Week. The award marks the second week in a row that a Bulldog has been honored, while representing the initial accolade for Van Genechten during her Drake career.
Van Genechten posted a pair of victories in the Bulldogs' 5-2 setback at Iowa State last Friday.
Paired with sophomore Nell Boyd (Arlington Heights, Ill.), the duo registered Drake's lone doubles victory, an 8-5 decision, at the No. 3 position. In singles, she bested Ana Gasparovic at No. 3 singles, 6-4, 7-5.
On the season, Van Genechten owns a 27-21 combined singles/doubles ledger, including 18-9 in singles. She has won her last four decisions in singles and is 8-2 over her last 10 singles matches. During the dual campaign she sports a 10-3 singles ledger.
Van Genechten and the Bulldogs (6-7) return to the Roger Knapp Tennis Center this Friday (March 15) for a 2:00 p.m. non-conference showdown with Bradley.
