Goncharova Earns Pac-12 Player of the Week Honors
SAN FRANCISCO – Utah's women's tennis player Anastasia Goncharova has been named the Pac-12 Women's Tennis Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Wednesday.
Goncharova became the first Ute to earn this honor since Taylor Calton claimed this honor during the 2018 season.
Goncharova went 2-0 in singles and 1-1 in doubles for the week. She improved to 9-0 in singles action and 8-1 in doubles this spring.
Playing a non-conference match against Washington State, Goncharova played No. 4 singles. With the match tied at 3-3, she dropped set one 6-7 (6). She bounced back and took the second set, 6-1, to force a third set. In the third set, she won 6-3 to clinch the match for the Utes.
She continued her winning ways against Minnesota as she and partner Emily Dush won in No. 2 doubles 6-2. She continued to win in No. 4 singles on the season with a 7-5, 6-1 win over Vasia Karvouni. The win grew the best start in program history for the Utes.
Utah will go head-to-head with Denver on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the George S. Eccles Tennis Center in Salt Lake City at 11 a.m. MT.
