NEW ORLEANS – After her stellar performance last week in Sun Belt play, Appalachian State University women’s tennis senior Jeannez Daniel (Port Charlotte, Fla./Florida Virtual) was named the Sun Belt Women’s Tennis Player of the Week.

earned a 4-2 win over Coastal Carolina on the road in the Sun Belt opener before defeating Arkansas State, 4-3. It’s the first time since 2013-14 the Apps have won multiple league matches, while
it’s the first time since 2012-13 the Black and Gold have won back-to-back conference contests on the road.
The senior clinched the match in singles play against the Chanticleers on Court No. 4 in a 7-6, 6-4 win over Zduniak, Alicja, capping off a stellar day after her and Rebecca Morse won their doubles match. Against
A-State, Daniel/Morse tied up the doubles portion with a 6-3 triumph against Amelia Guevremont/Pornpawee Pramethon. Later in the contest, Daniel served up a 6-2, 6-3 straight-set win against Anita Detlava
