ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake sophomore Mariel Ante (Riverside, Calif.) was honored as the MVC Women's Tennis Player of the Week. The award marks the third weekly accolade for a Bulldog this season and the first in Ante’s career.

Ante helped Drake extend its winning streak to seven this past week on the strength of a 3-0 combined singles/doubles mark in matches versus Nebraska and Colorado State.

In the Bulldogs' 5-2 victory at Nebraska last Friday (Feb. 28), Ante registered a 6-1, 6-4 triumph at No. 2 singles past Izabella Zgierska.

She added a pair of victories in a 7-0 decision over Colorado State last Saturday (March 1). In doubles, Ante and junior Nell Boyd (Arlington Heights, Ill.) captured the doubles point with an 8-6 win at No. 2, before netting a 7-5, 2-6, 10-7 triumph on the No. 2 singles court.

On the season, Ante owns a 37-12 combined singles/doubles ledger. She is 7-1 in singles during the dual campaign and has registered a 9-1 mark in her last 10 singles matches.

Ante and the 72nd-rated Bulldogs (7-1) return to action on Wednesday (March 5) hosting in-state rival Iowa at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center. Match time is set for 3:00 p.m.
