WALLA WALLA - Whitman's Courtney Lawless, a freshman tennis player, has been named Northwest Conference Student Athlete of the Week for the second time in two weeks.
Lawless led Whitman to a pair of NWC road victories last weekend, winning twice at No. 1 singles and twice at No. 1 doubles. She rolled through her matches while losing just two games in singles and one in doubles.
Lawless and her teammates, now 4-2 on the season and 3-1 in the NWC, host their home opener at 4 p.m. Friday against Pacific in the Bratton Tennis Center. The Boxers are 4-1 overall and 3-1 in conference.
