WELLESLEY, Mass. -- Wellesley College tennis junior Justine Huang (Coto de Caza, Calif.) has been named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women's Tennis Singles Athlete of the Week for the week ending April 1, 2018. The award is Huang's second of the season and the third of her collegiate career. 

Huang was a perfect 3-0 on the week to help the No. 31 ranked Blue complete a 4-1 California road trip. The trip included a big 7-2 victory over No. 33 Lewis & Clark in Pomona, Calif., where Huang downed Christine Eliazo, the T50 ranked singles player in the country. Huang has now won five straight matches and six of her last seven playing at No. 1 singles after closing out the week with wins over opponents from Whittier and Cerritos.

Huang and the Blue (8-5 overall) return home tomorrow for the first of three straight NEWMAC matches at Wellesley. The Blue will host Clark on Tuesday, April 3 at 4:30, before welcoming Wheaton on Sunday, April 8 at 11:00 AM and Babson next Tuesday, April 10 at 4:30 PM.
