Last week, Shrivistava, a junior from Pune, India, was the highlight of a tough week for NM State women’s tennis. The Aggies were unable to pick up a win in their most recent South Beach road trip. However, Shrivistava did come back with two singles’ victories at the No. 1 spot.

Against Florida Atlantic last Wednesday, Shrivistava defeated Catalina Ene (6-3, 6-0). The Following day, Shrivistava claimed a 2-6, 6-4, 10-6 victory over Barry University’s Elisabeth Abanda.

Tuesday was the seventh time this season that a NM State player was named WAC women’s tennis Athlete of the Week. Not only has Shrivistava been named four times, but senior Susana Alcaraz has also garnered the award four different times this season.

Shrivistava and Alcaraz currently lead the Aggies in singles’ at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots.

The Aggies will conclude the WAC regular season in Phoenix when they face UT-Pan American on Friday at 5:00 p.m. (MT) and against Grand Canyon on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. (MT).
