This week the Daily Campus sports desk is in agreement with the AAC in choosing junior SMU women’s tennis player Hirstina Dishkova as the Player of the Week.

Dishkova is the second Mustang to win the AAC’s award in two weeks, proceeding Dasha Sharapova’s title last week. Dishkova and double’s partner Holly Verner broke records this weekend winning three matches and setting a new school record with 23 single season doubles victories. Dishkova and Verner are 23-4 overall this season, including a perfect 12-0 mark in dual match play.

The German native also won No.1 singles against No. 41 New Mexico on Friday, pushing her singles record to 18-12. Dishkova and the Mustangs will return to SMU on Friday at 3 p.m. against the UAB Dragons.
