SU spring teams are fully into the ASC schedule this weekend with baseball and both tennis teams competing here on campus.  Several SU student-athletes earned American Southwest Conference player of the week awards recently.  In women's tennis, freshman Leanna Haynes won the award last week as did freshman Marco Hinojosa in men's tennis for the same week.  Freshman Amber Hernandez won the award this week in women's golf.  Also, congratulations to the entire SU Women's Golf team as they won their second straight tournament this spring season and continue to be ranked #9 in the nation.  In three tournaments this semester, SU in undefeated against NCAA Division III schools.

Here's a quick recap of action over the break and this week:

WOMEN'S GOLF - won the team title at the UT-Dallas Spring Invitational.  Freshman Amber Hernandez became the first freshman to win an individual title in the program's history by shooting 82-78.  She won the title by two shots over two players, including senior Gabby Rosales (78-84) who was looking for her second straight individual title.  Freshman Mariah Silvas also earned All-Tournament honors by finishing fifth after rounds of 86-78.  Three SU players shot rounds below 80 and they were the only players in the field to do so.

WOMEN'S TENNIS - went 2-2 on their spring break trip through Louisiana and Alabama.  The team won big over Louisiana College (9-0) and Loyola-New Orleans (8-1) but lost to Huntingdon and were edged by Centenary (5-4).  The freshman #1 doubles team of Haynes and Shelby Thompson went 3-1 during the trip.  Senior Kelley Spahn was undefeated in singles action for the week.  The team starts ASC play on Saturday at home vs. Texas Lutheran.
