Daskiewicz Named SSC Women's Tennis Player of the Week

WINTER PARK, Fla. - Saint Leo junior Adrianna Daskiewicz has been recognized as the Sunshine State Conference Women's Tennis Player of the Week presented by VALIC.

Daszkiewicz (Rumia, Poland) picked up four wins as the No. 7 Lions won a pair of 5-4 SSC thrillers. She picked up the match-clinching win in both contests. At No. 12 Rollins, Daszkiewicz staved off Mariana Salvador 4-6, 7-6 (7-1), 6-0 at #4 singles. She joined Coralie Pesenti for an 8-5 #3 doubles win over Salvador and Carli Davis.

Facing No. 21 Nova Southeastern, Daszkiewicz downed Carlee Rizzolo 6-4, 6-1 in the #3 singles slot and teamed with Pesenti for an 8-6 #3 doubles win over Bianca Roberts and Linda Kornienko. 

The Lions now prepare for one of the toughest stretches to open the final month of the regular season.  Saint Leo travels to Pensacola for two matches with teams from the Gulf South Conference. The first match is against No. 3 West Florida on Friday, April 5 at noon.
