University of Missouri–St. Louis senior Leanne Cantalupo has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Players of the Week in the sport of women’s tennis for the week of March 2-8.

Cantalupo, a civil engineering major, combined for a 5-1 record over three matches in singles and doubles action, helping the Tritons to a 1-2 record. After an 8-1 loss March 5 to Newman and falling 7-2 March 6 to Emporia State, UMSL finished strong with a 6-3 victory on March 7 at Washburn. After a three-set win past Marissa Kovach 6-0, 0-6, 10-8, the senior went on to beat her next two singles opponents in just two sets, first at position 3, 7-6, 6-0 and then 6-0, 6-0 at No. 4 singles. Those three wins extended her streak to six in a row.

The only blemish on Cantalupo’s three-day record was an 8-4 No. 3 doubles loss with Chandler Duchaine to Tamar Tskhakaia and Courtney Dodd of Newman. Following that loss she took an 8-2 and 8-3 win with Annie Hays in the No. 3 spot against Emporia State and Washburn, respectively.

The Austin, Texas, native has earned this weekly honor for the first time.
