For the third time this season, junior Marta Lesniak has received the Conference USA Women’s Tennis accolade for Player of the Week.

On the courts this week Lesniak, the ninth best singles player in the nation, went 4-0 against her opponents in both singles and and doubles.

She downed the country’s No. 11 singles player, Baylor’s Sona Novakova, 6-4, 4-6 (14-12). This was her 14th win over a ranked opponent this season alone.

Lesniak also swept over UC-Santa Barbara competitor Natalia Lozano 6-2, 6-2.

In doubles play, Lesniak, along with partner Aleksandra Malyarchikova, downed the No. 1 position pair from Baylor, 9-7, as well as toppled over UCSB’s top line duo 8-3.
