Makantasi named WAC Singles Tennis Player of the Week again


STEPHENVILLE – For the second straight week, Tarleton’s Martha Makantasi has earned league-wide recognition as the TicketSmarter WAC Singles Tennis Player of the Week.

This is the second consecutive week for Makantasi to claim the single award and the third straight week that Tarleton has been recognized. The doubles pairing of Celia Vaudiau and Rose Watanabe started the streak and last week Makantasi and Elsa Boisson continued it by earning the doubles award and singles award.

Makantasi continued to impress in her debut season as she picked up her fourth consecutive singles victory of the young season. Against Abilene Christian, Makantasi dominated at the No. 3 spot, winning her match against Sylvia Viljoen by a score of 6-4, 6-1. She also looked strong in her match with UT Arlington as she was up 1-0 after the first set before the clinching point was scored.

Makantasi and Tarleton will have to wait a little longer for their home debut following the cancelation of this weekend’s matches. The Texans will travel to Missouri State and Oral Roberts (OK) on Feb. 19 and 21 when they return to the court.
