Blalock earns Big West tennis honor

Cal Poly women’s tennis standout Brittany Blalock parlayed an undefeated week into being named Big West Conference Athlete of the Week for the second time this season Wednesday.

Blalock won two singles matches and teamed with partner Suzie Matzenauer to take a pair of doubles sets as well.

Blalock is 14-5 in singles this year and 17-2 in doubles. Her doubles tandem is ranked 32nd in the nation entering the final weekend of the regular season.

The Mustangs (14-6), seeded fourth, will open the Big West Conference tournament against fifth-seeded Cal State Northridge on April 29 in Indian Wells.
