Sophomore women's tennis player Jennifer Nguyen has been named the Northwestern Mutual Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week. 

Nguyen, a sophomore from Wollongong, Australia, went 3-0 at No. 1 singles and 3-0 at No. 2 doubles to lead Sacramento State to Big Sky wins over Southern Utah, Weber State, and Idaho State. In singles play she started her weekend with a 6-1, 6-0 victory at No. 1 over SUU’s Alex Ivanova and followed with a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 1 over Agata Bachanek of Weber State. On Sunday she was again nearly perfect with a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Idaho State’s Marian Tangarife. 

Nguyen played with sophomore Daria Savchenko at No. 2 doubles in each of the three matches, starting with an 8-0 blanking of Southern Utah’s Jane Marushko and Veronika Rogova. The pair then scored an 8-2 win against the No. 2 duo of Weber State and ended the weekend with an 8-2 win over Kelsey Bacon and Madelyn Weltzin of Idaho State.

The pair of Nguyen and Savchenko are now 4-1 this season at No. 2 doubles and Nguyen has four victories playing exclusively No. 1 singles.
