WALLA WALLA - Courtney Lawless, a first-year player on the Whitman College women's tennis team, has been named Northwest Conference Student Athlete of the Week for the third time this season.
Lawless, who came to Whitman from Austin, Texas, added 10 victories to her win total last week as the Missionaries won four of five Spring Break matches in the Lonestar state.
Lawless teamed with junior Alyssa Roberg to win all five of their matches at No. 1 doubles. She also won three times at No. 2 singles and twice at No. 1 singles.
Whitman, now 6-1 in the NWC and 11-3 overall, plays Saturday at Whitworth (6-1 NWC, 10-3 overall).
