WILMINGTON, NC March 18, 2014 – Sophomore Christine Kharkevitch (pronounced Cark-ah-vich) of UNCW has been selected the Colonial Athletic Association’s women’s tennis singles Player-of-the-Week.
The Houston, Texas, product rolled past North Carolina Central’s Ekaterina Nekrasova, 6-0, 7-5, at No. 3 singles in the Seahawks’ 6-1 dismantling of the Eagles last week. Kharkevich has reeled off eight straight matches while playing at the No. 3, 4 and 5 spots and stands 10-1 overall this spring.
“Christine’s very deserving of this award,” said second-year Head Coach Evan Clark. “She’s been a rock for us.It’s a credit to all of the hard work she’s put in over last summer and this fall.”
The Seahawks carry an 8-3 record and three-match winning streak into Saturday’s 2 p.m. match against Colonial Athletic Association rival Towson at the UNCW courts.
