Daria Savchenko, Women's Tennis

Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week, April 21-27

Sophomore women's tennis player Daria Savchenko is the Northwestern Mutual Student-Athlete of the Week after going undefeated at No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles to help lead Sacramento State to its 13th-consecutive Big Sky Tournament championship. She was 3-0 at No. 1 doubles and did not drop a set, opening the tournament with a 6-1, 6-2 win against Adriana Nieto of Northern Colorado. In the semifinals she beat Northern Arizona's Johanna Vang and she then topped Haley Driver, the No. 1 player for top-seed Montana, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the championship match. Savchenko teamed with sophomore Olivia Boija at No. 2 doubles and earned an 8-0 sweep against Northern Colorado in the quarterfnals. The duo was leading against Northern Arizona but that match went unfinised, and in the title match they defeated Sasha Carter and Laurence Pelchat of Montana, 8-3, to give the Hornets the doubles point. In her first season at Sacramento State, Savchenko is 13-7 overall and 5-1 at No. 1 singles and 16-7 overall in doubles, going 8-0 in the Big Sky.
