BALTIMORE – Loyola University Maryland’s Amanda Lanciano was named the Corvias Patriot League Women’s Tennis Player of the Week Monday after going undefeated in four matches last week.
The freshman from Haddonfield, New Jersey, won both of her singles contests and paired with Loyola sophomore Ania Krawiec to win two doubles contests for the Greyhounds.
Lanciano posted a 6-3, 6-1, victory over La Salle University’s Ally Santerelli at No. 2 singles on Thursday, and she then rallied from a 5-7 first-set loss to beat Colgate University’s Kaelin Britton, 6-2, in the second set on Saturday. She then eased past Britto with a 10-2 super-tiebreaker win in the third set to help the Greyhounds to a 7-0 Patriot League win against the Raiders.
In doubles action, Lanciano paired with Krawiec for a pair of No. 1 flight wins over teams from La Salle and Colgate. They beat the Explorers’ Jade Smith and Jayla Smith, 8-2, and Colgate’s Jen Ho and Katie Grant, 8-5.
The duo is now 11-2 in doubles competition this season, and she is 13-11 in singles action. In four League matches, Lanciano is 3-1 in both singles and doubles play.
Monday’s award is the second of the year for Loyola women’s tennis players. Krawiec earned the honor earlier this season.
