NSU tennis gets 7 MIAA honors

The MIAA Women's Tennis All-Conference teams were announced Thursday, and the NSU women led the league with seven honorees. The postseason awards are voted on by the league's coaches.

NSU freshman Kristina Savchenkov led the way, as she was named the MIAA Freshman of the Year. She boasted a 20-2 singles record, playing all of her matches at the second position. She also teamed with NSU senior Ivana Belejova to comprise the nation's No. 19-ranked doubles tandem, and they have posted a 20-3 record so far this season.

The top two teams in the league all season were Northeastern State and Southwest Baptist, and the league coaches agreed as the two schools were the only ones to pick up first-team all-conference accolades. The RiverHawks scooped up four of the six singles selections, while the Bearcats earned the other two spots and swept the three doubles teams.

Savchenkov, juniors Houda Bellamine (20-3) and Martina Bruzikova (21-2), and sophomore Barbora Jirickova (20-1) were all first-team All-MIAA selections for NSU.

The doubles teams of Belejova/Savchenkov and Bellamine/Jeanne Mallem (18-7) were both honored as second-team selections.

Belejova (11-13), Mallem (17-5) and freshman Lucia Cerchlanova (3-1) were all named honorable mention in singles, while the doubles team of Bruzikova and Jirickova (20-5) was also named honorable mention.

Northeastern State is set to begin competition in the 2013 NCAA Women's Tennis Championship. The RiverHawks have been chosen as a host site for Central Regional and they will play host to Central Oklahoma at noon Saturday at the NSU Tennis Complex.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
