FOREST, Va. --- In an announcement from the Old Dominion Athletic Conference office released on Monday, March 25, Sweet Briar College student-athlete Sarah Manter (Brunswick, Maine/Brunswick) has been named to the Women's Tennis Player of the Week Honor Roll.

 

The senior captain was recognized for her performance against Randolph College in the Vixen's lone match of the week.  With all play completed except the No. 1 singles match and the overall score tied, Manter and Randolph's Patricia Verdezoto (Cuenza, Azuay, Ecuador/Bilingue Intermaericano) battled for the all important match point and ODAC victory.
