University of Missouri–St. Louis junior Louisa Werner has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week, as announced last week by the league office.

Werner went undefeated in singles and doubles play leading up to the announcement as the UMSL Tritons defeated Missouri Western State University (St. Joseph), 9-0, and lost a 5-4 decision to Northwest Missouri State University (Maryville).

Werner won both singles matches in straight sets, playing at the No. 2 position. She defeated Ceara Boldridge of Missouri Western, 6-2, 6-0 before a 6-3, 6-3 win over Natalia Galindo of Northwest Missouri State University.

Werner then teamed with freshman Renee Verboven to pick up two wins at No. 1 doubles, including an 8-4 victory over No. 22 ranked Camila Quesda and Alexis Bartek of Northwest Missouri State. It was just the opposing duo’s second loss of the year. Werner and Verboven also defeated Missouri Western’s Denise Chiao and Meara Smith, 8-3.

At the time of being named GLVC Women’s Tennis Player of the Week, Werner had won five straight singles matches and was 9-4 overall, and she and Verboven had improved to 7-2 in doubles.

Werner is majoring in finance and international business.
