CORPUS CHRISTI – Judit Vives has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Vives earns the award after notching three wins in last week's play.
Freshman Vives put together another incredible week for the Islanders women's tennis team, winning all three singles matches to improve to a team-best 14-1 singles record on the year.
She started out the week with a sweeping 6-0, 6-0 straight-set victory in No. 3 singles over Prairie View A&M before clinching her third straight Southland Conference match for the Islanders.
The Barcelona, Spain native secured the match for the Islanders over Sam Houston State with a straight-set, 6-2, 6-2, win at No. 2 singles. Vives, who started out at No. 6 singles at the beginning of the season, worked her way up to No. 3, before earning her first win at No. 2.
On Sunday, Vives earned her second win of the season at No. 2 singles and a team-high eighth consecutive victory with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Lamar to improve to 7-1 in Southland play.
The Islanders women's tennis team will travel to UT-Pan American for a 2 p.m. match with the Broncs in Edinburg, before returning back to the Coastal Bend on Saturday for a noon meeting with Houston at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center.
