Coming off a stellar week of singles and doubles play, University of Missouri–St. Louis sophomore Louisa Werner was named the Great Lakes Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week last week. Werner guided the UMSL Tritons at the Principia Tournament March 2-3 in Elsah, Ill., by going 2-0 at No. 1 singles and 2-0 at No. 1 doubles. Werner dropped just seven games throughout the entire tournament.

In the No. 1 singles flight, Werner started off the tournament by compiling a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Principia College’s Kelly Adams. She then claimed a decisive 6-0, 6-1 win over Elise Beckemeier of Missouri Baptist University (Creve Coeur) to clinch the No. 1 singles flight.

In doubles action, she teamed with Pujitha Bandi to win the No. 1 doubles flight. The duo earned an 8-3 victory over Adams and Hilary Frandsen of Principia, and returned to claim their second win of the event over Missouri Baptist’s Niki Riddle and Elise Beckemeier to win the flight.
