McKinzie Claims SAC Women's Tennis Player of the Week Honors
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba’s Julia McKinzie has been named the South Atlantic Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week after helping the Lady Indians to a pair of wins last week. It was announced league officials Tuesday.
McKinzie, a 5-5 senior from Austin, Texas, recorded a pair of singles at the top flight as the Catawba Lady Indians recorded a pair of 6-1 wins over NCAA Division I opponents Winston-Salem State and North Carolina Central. McKinzie claimed a straight set win against WSSU, while earning a win in a third-set tiebreaker over NCCU.
The Lake Travis High School graduate also claimed a No. 1 doubles win with freshman Kasia Zielinski against WSSU. For the season, McKinzie improved her singles mark to 2-3, while standing 3-2 in doubles.
The SAC Women’s Tennis Player of the Week is selected by a vote of the league’s sports information directors.
