NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – Following a 6-0 week that catapulted the Merrimack College women’s tennis program to a 3-0 week, senior Grace Messina (Caracas, Venezuela)was named the Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Tuesday morning.

Messina did not lose a set during singles play, topping opponents from Franklin Pierce, New Haven and defending NE-10 champion Adelphi.

The team captain combined with sophomore Mana Seifaei (North York, Ontario) to post an undefeated doubles record as well, competing at the first flight.
