Murphy named AAC Tennis Player of the Week for play against Union

COLUMBIA, S.C.— Columbia College tennis (3-3, 1-3 AAC) dropped AAC Conference opponent Union College, Ky. (2-10, 1-4 AAC) 7-2 after being rained out previously in February.

Among the stellar performances, Columbia's Madyson Murphy (FR/Prosperity, SC) was named the AAC Tennis Player of the Week for her play against Union and Wesleyan College. Murphy had taken the first set 6-0 against Union before rain postponed the match. When play resumed Saturday, Murphy came from behind to take the set 7-5, for Columbia's win.

Coach Powell was proud of Murphy's play, "Yesterday, her opponent came ready to play and forced Madyson to make some crucial decisions in her second set to gain the win and secure the Koala's their first conference win of the season."

The tennis team plays again tomorrow Saturday, March 24th against AAC opponent Bluefield College at 12pm.
