WELLESLEY, Mass. -- Wellesley College tennis players Diana Granger and Sojung Lee were honored by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) today, being named Women's Tennis Doubles Team of the Week for the period ending September 17th. 

Granger, a Glencoe Ill. native, and Sojung Lee, from Seoul, Korea, led the Blue to a 9-0 sweep over Smith to open NEWMAC play on Saturday. The duo paired up for a convincing 8-0 win over Bayla Weick and Seema Samawi at the number one spot in the lineup. Granger and Lee also each won their singles matches with Lee not allowing an opponent a point against her the entire day.

The Wellesley tennis team is 2-0 on the season, with a 1-0 mark in NEWMAC play. The Blue will next play at Clark on Saturday, battling the Cougars at 1:00pm.
