ELMHURST, Ill. — For the second consecutive week, Centenary sophomore tennis player Anja Schmidt used a victory over an SEC opponent to earn the honor of Mid-Con Women's Tennis Player of the Week.

Last Saturday, Schmidt defeated Jessica Ferguson, the top singles player for 49th-ranked LSU, in straight sets (6-4, 6-4) for the Ladies' only point of the match. Schmidt has now defeated the top singles players from both the Tigers and the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

Earlier today, Schmidt continued her winning ways, first teaming up with sophomore Heather Kelley to defeat Anneline Zerwick and Alexandra Nieto of Northwestern State in doubles, 8-2. Then Schmidt earned the only singles point for Centenary, defeating Zerwick in straight sets (6-2, 6-3).

Schmidt will attempt to extend her singles winning streak Saturday afternoon as the Ladies travel to face Louisiana-Monroe beginning at 2 p.m.
