|MC's Unzicker Unbeaten; Earns Conference Honor
|Monmouth College two-sport athlete Amy Unzicker knocked off a Division II opponent to end a perfect week in singles tennis and was rewarded with the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week honor.
Unzicker, a Morton native who also does duty with the Fighting Scots women's soccer team, focused on tennis for three matches last week and went 3-0 at No. 1 singles. The sophomore began the week with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Megan Funk of Knox, she then outlasted Beloit's Hannah Perwin 7-6 (11-9), 6-3 and finished the stretch with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Anele Novak of Division II Quincy. Unzicker teamed with Kimi Wegner as the Fighting Scots No. 1 doubles team and was 1-2 in that competition. Unzicker and Wegner downed Knox 8-4, but fell to Beloit and Quincy by identical 8-2 scores.
For the season, Unzicker is 9-4 overall at No. 1 singles and has won seven of her last 10 matches.
