GW's Nederlander Tabbed A-10 Women's Tennis Rookie Performer of the Week
Rookie Nabs First Weekly Award After Helping Colonials to Win Over Duquesne
April 1, 2014
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – George Washington freshman Taylor Nederlander was named the Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis Rookie Performer of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.
Nederlander went unbeaten in singles and doubles action as she lifted GW to a 5-2 win at Duquesne on Sunday and helped the Colonials improve to 3-2 mark in conference play. The weekly award makes the first of her young career with the Buff and Blue.
The Laguna Beach, Calif., native first teamed up with senior Isabella Escobar at the No. 1 doubles spot to defeat the Dukes’ Judy Li and Alexa Miller, 8-6. She then earned a 7-6 (1), 6-1 decision over Zuzanna Stelmaszak in No. 3 singles to help GW secure the victory.
The rookie owns a team-best overall record of 14-7 and has gone 5-4 in dual-match play this spring. She is 3-1 against A-10 competition and has won four of her last seven matches, one of which went unfinished. Nederlander and Escobar are 5-4 overall and 3-3 on the spring season as the Colonials’ top doubles duo.
GW returns to action on Friday when it welcomes Xavier. Due to impending inclement weather, a location and time for the match is to be determined. Check back to GWsports.com for further match details.
