USC's Salma Ewing Wins Pac-12 Women’s Tennis Player of the Week
LOS ANGELES--USC women's tennis player Salma Ewing has been recognized by the conference as the Pac-12 Women's Tennis Player of the Week for her stellar performance in USC's two matches over the weekend.
This is Ewing's first career Pac-12 Women's Tennis Player of the Week honor and the 42nd all-time weekly honor for the Trojans.
In USC's first match of the weekend against No. 6 UCLA, Ewing's win was a bright moment of the match in the Trojan's 6-1 loss to the Bruins. After dropping her first set 6-4 to UCLA's No. 19 Jada Hart, she battled back in true fight on fashion by taking the next set 6-4 and winning her 10-point tiebreak 10-6 to put the only point on the board for USC.
During USC's 6-1 upset over No. 13 Oklahoma State, Ewing notched another win with a 6-4, 3-6, 1-0 (10-4) victory over Cowgirl No. 77 Ayumi Miyamoto on court three.
Ewing, a junior at USC, is currently riding a five-match winning streak.
In addition to both of her singles victories, she won both of her doubles matches as well making her the only player on the Trojan roster this past weekend to collect four wins.
This weekend, Ewing and the Women of Troy will travel out of state for the first time this season to challenge the Washington Huskies on March 5 at 1:30 p.m. PT in Seattle, and then take on the Washington State Cougars on March 7 at 11 a.m. PT in Pullman, Wash.
