Whitman's Roberg nets NWC tennis Player of the Week


WALLA WALLA - Alyssa Roberg, a Whitman College junior, has been named Northwest Conference Student Athlete of the Week award for women's tennis.

Roberg, a two-time All-NWC first-team selection, led Whitman to its fifth straight victory last Friday with a 9-0 victory over Pacific.

Roberg helped Whitman get the sweep in doubles, joining first-year teammate Courtney Lawless for a 9-7 victory over Cat Goya and Megan Yoshimoto, Pacific's two best players, in the No. 1 slot.

Roberg and Goya then squared off at No. 1 singles, where Roberg was a 6-4, 6-1 winner.

Whitman, now 4-1 in the NWC and 5-2 overall, stays at home this weekend for two more NWC matches. The Missionaries host Lewis & Clark at 4 p.m. today and George Fox at 11 a.m. Saturday.
