MELBOURNE, FL - The Sunshine State Conference announced on Monday that Florida Southern College women's tennis senior Natalija Popovic had won the Conference Player of the Week. The honor is the first in Popovic's career and the first for any Moccasin women's tennis player since April 17, 2017 when Sasha Nionova won the award.
Popovic went undefeated in singles play for the No. 19 Moccasins in their two 4-3 victories over No. 47 Rollins and Florida Tech. The senior won 6-4, 6-3 over Savanna Fuller from the Tars and in three sets (3-6, 6-3, 6-0) over Maria Chun from the Panthers in the No. 3 singles flights. Popovic is now 8-4 in singles play this season and is 11th all-time in singles wins for Florida Southern with a career record of 52-19 in singles play.
The No. 19 Mocs will play their last regular season match this Tuesday as they host No. 3 Saint Leo at the Wynee Warden Tennis Center. The match, rescheduled from earlier this season, will start at 4 p.m.
