Sara Loncarevic

Murray State’s Sara Loncarevic has earned OVC Co-Female Player of the Week for her recent stretch of strong play on the tennis court.

Sara Loncarevic of Murray State women’s tennis has been named the Ohio Valley Conference Co-Female Player of the Week. She shares the weekly honor with Austin Peay’s Fabienne Schmidt.

Loncarevic went 4-0 across singles and doubles competition on the week, refusing to drop a single set over Murray State’s two matches. The fifth-year senior cruised to a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Southern Indiana’s Rachel McCorkle at the No. 1 singles position on Saturday, while also teaming up with Marit Kreugel to earn a convincing 6-0 victory at No. 3 doubles on the day.

She continued that momentum into Monday’s match against Louisiana Tech, storming back from being down 1-5 in the first set of her match at No. 1 singles against Leonie Schuknecht to secure a 7-5, 7-5 straight-sets victory. She also got the job done in doubles with a 6-4 triumph at No. 3 to complete the perfect week. With the outstanding week, the Guilherand-Granges, France, native recorded her 101st career victory across all competitions in a Racer uniform.

She is the first Racer to earn a weekly award in 2021, and the first since Stasya Sharapova garnered the honor on March 3, 2020.
