ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- After posting an undefeated record during the month of March, Navy senior women's tennis player Emani Decquir was honored as the Patriot League Women's Tennis Player of the Month, the league office announced on Thursday.
It marks the third time in school history that a Navy women's tennis player has earned Player of the Month accolades and is the first-such honor for Decquir.
Decquir, a three-time first-team all-Patriot League performer from Sacramento, Calif., had a brilliant month compiling a 9-0 combined record and helping the Midshipmen post a 7-0 team mark during the month. She went 4-0 at No. 1 singles and combined with freshmen Sam Droop (4-0) and Katie Porter (1-0) for a 5-0 record while playing No. 2 doubles. Three of her four singles wins were in straight sets and her lone three-set win came against Delaware's Danea Jonjic, the No. 1 player for a team that was ranked as high as 62nd in the country. She defeated a pair of Patriot League opponents last weekend allowing just 13 games won by her opponent in the two matches combined.
Decquir now owns a 17-11 singles record this year, including a 9-4 mark in dual meetsi, while going 8-13 in doubles action this year.
Decquir is second on the school's all-time singles victories list with 63, first on the doubles list with 54 and holds the school record for career combined wins with 117.
Navy, owners of a 19-3 overall record and winners of 17 matches in a row, travels to Army on Sunday for the first Star Match in series history. Action gets underway at 9:00 AM at West Point, N.Y.
