ATLANTA- Grad Student Annika Van Gunst and junior Brooke Weiner earned CCSA Pair of the Week as announced by the conference Tuesday afternoon. The duo produced a 4-0 record on the weekend, helping the Panthers to a 3-1 weekend at the UNF Beach Invitational.
In their first match of the weekend, Van Gunst and Weiner dropped the first game to LSU before rallying back to win the next two games and clinching a 3-2 win for the Panthers over the then sixth ranked Tigers. The pair would follow the performance up with a convincing two set win in GSU’s 5-0 sweep of Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
On day two of action Van Gunst and Weiner would again win in three sets, this time helping the Panthers to a 4-1 win over UNC Wilmington. The duo would finish off their perfect weekend by defeating the two pair from No. 8 South Carolina in straight sets.
The four wins this past weekend improves the pair’s record to 5-1 on the season. The Panthers have a 5-3 mark overall and are currently ranked eleventh in the nation.
“Every pair we have pushes one another during match days, and all week in practice”, said Beth Van Fleet. “We know that it is a team effort when one of our pairs plays at a high level.”
