Sarah Viebrock Named NEC Women’s Tennis Player of the Week

SOMERSET, N.J. – Senior Sarah Viebrock (Carmel, N.Y.) of the Quinnipiac University women's tennis team has been named the Northeast Conference Player of the Week, announced on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 by the league office.

Viebrock came up big for Quinnipiac on Monday as the Bobcats nearly upended 2012 Patriot League runner up Navy, a team currently riding a 14-match win streak. The two-time All-NEC first team honoree rallied to knock off Navy's Darien Sears - herself a first team All-Patriot League selection a year ago - by a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 final score in #3 singles. Viebrock, who hails from Carmel, NY, also posted an 8-5 win at #1 doubles along with Rachel Cantor.

The senior is 9-5 on the year in singles and has racked up 123 combined singles and doubles victories in her four years in Hamden.

The Bobcats return to action on Wednesday, March 13 with the second match of their spring break trip. Quinnipiac will take on Southern Illinois in Orlando at 3:30 p.m.
