New Orleans (ASU) – The Arkansas State women's tennis doubles
team of sophomore Elne' Barnard and senior Rone' van Wyk was named to
the All-Sun Belt Conference team the league announced Thursday evening
at the SBC tennis banquet in New Orleans, La.
"These girls have been an excellent doubles team for us all spring,"
said ASU head coach Marcia Williams. "It is a great accomplishment to
make all-conference, and I'm very proud of them both."
Barnard and van Wyk hold a 12-2 record on the season and are currently
riding a five-game win streak, playing solely at No. 1. The South
African natives have posted three separate win streaks of four or more
matches this season.
van Wyk earned SBC Player of the Week earlier in the season and boasts
a 10-4 singles record. She is also currently riding a five-match win
streak at No. 3. Barnard sits at 7-8 in singles actions, playing at
No. 1 in all but two matches this season.
Barnard, van Wyk and the rest of the Red Wolves squad will be back in
action Friday, when they take on top-seeded Florida International in
