Cal Poly

Cal Poly's Blalock honored by Big West

For her role in two major upsets against Stanford, Cal Poly women’s tennis player Brittany Blalock was named the Big West Conference Athlete of the Week on Wednesday.

Blalock, 13-1 in doubles and 11-3 in singles this season, dealt Stanford’s Lindsay Burdette — the 40th-ranked individual in the March 16 edition of the ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings — a 4-6, 6-1 (10-0) defeat to earn Cal Poly’s lone victory during a 6-1 loss Sunday.

Earlier that day, Blalock and Suzie Matzenauer downed the second-ranked Cardinal pairing of Lindsay Burdette anf Hilary Barte, 8-5.

Wednesday’s honor was the fourth of Blalock’s career and second by a Mustang this season.
