NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - After sweeping weekend competition, George Washington sophomore Lana Robins was named the Atlantic 10 Women's Tennis Performer of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday .

Robins, who entered the season with a No. 17 Atlantic Region singles ranking by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), went undefeated in singles and doubles play in GW's narrow 4-3 loss to Navy on Saturday.
