Hannah Dattilo takes SAA weekly women's tennis honor

Junior Hannah Dattilo of the Oglethorpe women's tennis team earned SAA Women's Tennis Player of the Week honors from the league's coaches Wednesday. It marked the first such honor of her career and the team's first SAA weekly honor of the season.

She went 6-0 against SAA competition with singles and doubles wins at Hendrix, Rhodes and Berry.

In singles, she earned a 6-2, 6-2 win over Hendrix on April 13 and came up with a tight, three-set win against Berry, 2-6, 6-2, 6-4. Her win tied the match 4-4 but the Petrels eventually lost 5-4.

In doubles, Dattilo paired with senior Shannon Cruz and earned 8-5 wins over Hendrix, Berry, and regionally-ranked Rhodes.

She and the rest of the Petrels now get set for the first round of the SAA Tournament on Friday. They hold the conference's No. 7 seed and will take on No. 2 seed Centre at 1 p.m. EDT from the Adams Tennis Complex in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
