Senior Elon University women’s tennis player Frida Jansaker added to her list of accolades for the 2014 season May 6, as the Southern Conference announced that she was named Player of Month for the month of April.
Jansaker, who was named to the All-SoCon second team, went 8-0 in singles and 6-2 in doubles play in the month of April. The senior went undefeated at the SoCon Tournament in Chattanooga, Tenn., in mid-April, where Elon captured its first championship in program history.
Jansaker’s performance at the tournament earned her Most Outstanding Player honors, capping off an impressive season in which she posted a record of 17-4 in singles play at the No. 2 position. The Kristianstad, Sweden, native currently still holds a 10-match winning streak in singles and a five-match doubles winning streak with junior Maria Camara Ruiz.
Jansaker and the Phoenix will play in their first ever NCAA Tournament match May 9 after securing the SoCon’s automatic bid by winning the SoCon Tournament. Elon is set to face No. 1 seed University of Georgia in the first round at 4 p.m. in Athens, Ga.
Elon lost to the Bulldogs, 4-0, earlier this season at the ITA Kickoff Weekend Tournament Jan. 24. The winner of Elon-Georgia match will take on the winner of the match between Florida State University and the University of Arizona May 11.
