GLIAC -- The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) has announced its fourth women's tennis weekly awards for the 2019 season. Wayne State sophomore Laura Cazacu claimed GLIAC Player of the Week honors after an impressive weekend against conference opponents.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Ivona Gorgioski - Michigan Tech
Junior Ivona Gorgioski turned in two solid performances for the Huskies in a pair of Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference victories this past weekend. Gorgioski went 2-0 in both singles and doubles, leading Tech to a 5-2 win over Northwood on Saturday and a 6-1 triumph against Saginaw Valley State on Sunday.
In Saturday’s match with the Timberwolves, Gorgioski was paired up with Kate Berestovenko in No. 1 singles and prevailed in three sets 3-6, 6-1, 6-1. Gorgioski made some great adjustments following a slow start in the first set to dominate the second and third sets on the way to a crucial point for the Huskies. It helped provide a big spark for Tech in the match. Earlier in the contest, Gorgioski teamed up with Jessica Brown in doubles for a 6-0 win.
In the win over Saginaw Valley State, Gorgioski claimed a 6-4, 6-2 win over Maddie Miller in the No. 1 position in the lineup. Gorgioski and Brown also notched another doubles victory 7-5 in a back and forth battle in No. 1 doubles against Maddie Miller and Taylor McLaughlin.
HONORABLE MENTION: Maddie MIller (SVSU), Dominika Bobik (MTU), Anna Hart (AU)
