CSU tennis player Laura Neal was named the Mountain West Conferenceâ€™s Womenâ€™s Player of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.
Neal, whoâ€™s ranked as the teamâ€™s No. 1 singles player and is on the Ramsâ€™ top doubles squad, helped CSU earn a 5-2 victory over Northern Arizona in a dual match Saturday.
In her singles match, Neal, a senior from Portland, Ore., defeated Orsi Golovics in two sets, putting a jump-start on the comeback win for CSU.
Also on Saturday, Neal, along with partner Caitlin Fluegge, upset the Lumberjacksâ€™ doubles team of Golovics and Mila Wahinepio. Golovics and Wahinepio are ranked as the No. 35 doubles team in the country.
Currently riding a three dual-winning streak, the Rams travel to Las Cruces, N.M. on Friday to face the New Mexico State Aggies before making the short trip to El Paso, Texas, where theyâ€™ll face UTEP and Lamar on Saturday and Sunday.
