Jakubas earns weekly recognition for Panthers
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The No. 1 player on the Plymouth State University women's tennis team was recognized by Little East Conference (LEC) Monday with top recognition in the weekly awards program.
Senior Zara Jakubas (Califon, N.J./Voorhees) was tabbed as the LEC Women's Tennis Player of the Week. The reigning LEC Player of the Year and First Team All-Conference selection, Jakubas helped the Panthers to a pair of LEC victories last week over Salem State University and Western Connecticut State University.
A 5'6" senior, Jakubas won both of her #1 singles matches in straight sets, and teamed with freshman Irene Ireme (Concord, N.H.) for a pair of 8-4 victories at #1 doubles. She has won five singles matches in a row to up her season record to 6-1 and her career mark to 20-1. Jakubas is also 5-2 at No. 1 doubles this season and sports a career doubles mark of 19-3.
PSU has won four matches in a row to improve to 5-4 overall and 5-1 in the LEC. The Panthers will host Lyndon State College Tuesday on Senior Day at the Holderness School Courts, and will travel to league-leading Rhode Island College Saturday for a key conference match-up. PSU defeated RIC in last year's LEC championship match.
