Siena senior Brittany Filip was named MAAC Women's Tennis Player of the Week today after a perfect 3-0 during the Saints' Spring Break trip to Hilton Head.
Filip (Vestal, N.Y./Vestal) began the week with a 6-1 and 6-3 win over Delaware State's Maja Banas at No. 1 singles. She followed that effort up with a gutty three-set 6-1, 4-6 and 7-6 victory at No. 2 singles over Halima Michael of Davis & Elkins. Filip closed the week with a straight set 6-4 and 6-4 win over Savannah State's Sandra Kristjansdottir at No. 1 singles.
Filip also teamed with Elora Benfer to go 2-1 in doubles play on Hilton Head this past week. The pair posted wins over Davis & Elkins and Savannah State at No. 3 doubles.
The Siena women defeated Davis & Elkins and Savannah State in straight sets and lost a tough 5-2 decision to Delaware State. The Saints (5-6) return to action Wednesday against Sacred Heart in a match that has been moved indoors to Tri City Racquet Club in Latham at 3 p.m.
