Ilina picks up 100th career win, A-Sun POTW nod

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

MACON, Ga. (April 10, 2007) - Becoming just the first female in school history to amass 100 career victories, ETSU's Masha Ilina has been selected at the Atlantic Sun's Player of the Week, league officials announced today.

 

Ilina, a senior from Kyiv, Ukraine, defeated Lauriane Auvergne of Mercer in the No.1 singles slot (6-1, 6-2) and paired with Olya Batsula to pick up a doubles win (8-2).

 

Although Ilina is the first female to reach the 100 career wins plateau, she is the fourth tennis player, male or female, to reach such a mark in ETSU history.

 

The honor is the first of its kind for Ilina, who was tabbed the Player of the Year following the Lady Bucs' rise to the top of the A-Sun 2006. Ilina was also a 2006 First-Team All-Conference selection. She is currently 19-16 on the season and is 14-7 in dual competition. Her career record currently sits at 100-52.

 

The Atlantic Sun Player of the Week is announced every Tuesday during the 2007 tennis season.

 

The 12-member league headquartered in Macon, Ga., consists of Belmont, Campbell, ETSU, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, UNF and Stetson with Florida Gulf Coast and USC Upstate beginning competition in 2007-08.
