WASHINGTON – Freshman women’s tennis player Victoire Saperstein (Las Vegas, Nev./Odyssey Charter School) was named All-BIG EAST on Thursday morning by the conference office. She became the third player and the first freshman to earn All-BIG EAST honors under Georgetown Head Coach Gordie Ernst.
She was one of two freshman to earn the honor this year; 12 women overall were named All-BIG EAST representing six different schools.
Saperstein went 11-8 in singles matches including a mark of 8-6 at No. 1 singles. She went 4-3 in BIG EAST matches.
The freshman started out the season playing No. 5 and 6 singles matches and took over the No. 1 spot on February 22 against Montana State. The switch coincided with the Hoyas six-match winning streak starting with Montana State and continuing through a conference sweep over Providence on March 22. During that time, Saperstein went 3-3 from the No. 1 single position.
Saperstein went 10-4 in doubles including an 8-2 record with partner Liselot Koenen (St. Charles, Ill./St Charles North). Saperstein and Koenen won both of their doubles match from the No. 1 position at the BIG EAST Championship.
The Hoyas dropped their opening round draw at the BIG EAST Championship in late April to St. John’s before defeating Villanova in a backdraw victory on Saturday, April 26. Saperstein won both of her singles matches at the championship.
