Cambridge, Mass.—Senior BU women’s tennis player Marina Bykovskaya was named Female Player of the Week by the America East conference Tuesday afternoon. She joins fellow senior Jillian Santos (2-22-12) as the other BU female tennis player to win this honor in 2012.
The Saratov, Russia native went a perfect 2-0 from the no. 3 singles position against Stony Brook and Hartford over the weekend. Bykovskaya was crucial in the 4-3 victory over the Seawolves, putting the Bearcats ahead with a 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 triumph. Bykovskaya leads the Bearcats with a 21-14 record this season in singles competition and is 13-7 during dual matches. She also went 1-1 in doubles Saturday, improving her career record to 71-44 (.617). With her 71st victory she now moves up into fourth-place all-time on the program list.
Bykovskaya & Co. will be on the road this weekend as they head to Flushing, NY to compete in the 2012 America East Championship. The Bearcats are looking to break their streak of four straight runner-ups in search of their first conference title in school history.
