Emily Harrison named Conference Carolinas Women’s Tennis Player of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Lees-McRae College women's tennis player Emily Harrison has been named the Conference Carolinas Women's Tennis Player of the Week by the league office today. The honor is not only the first for the Bobcats this season but also the first weekly award that the program has received since 2009.

"She has been so positive and worked very hard throughout the process," said LMC Head Coach Rodger Acklin. "She is a great young lady and every coach's dream in being open to improving and trusting her coach to help her improve."

Harrison was an integral part of LMC's 5-4 victory over Mars Hill last Wednesday. Along with her double partner Dakota Tittle, Harrison teamed to pick up a win out of the No. 3 double slot. In singles, Harrison clinched the match for the Bobcats with a 6-1, 6-0 win in the No. 6 singles position.

Harrison and the rest of the Bobcats will return to action this Saturday when they travel to Spartanburg, S.C. for a match at Converse. Start time for that match is set for 1 p.m.
