Reining Named As Little East Women's Tennis Rookie Of The Week

UMass Dartmouth junior Monika Reining was named as the Little East Conference Women’s Tennis Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon for her efforts in the Corsairs’ 7-2 league dual-match victory over Southern Maine last Saturday on the UMD Courts.

A native of Linsengericht, Germany and a graduate of Grimmelshausen-Gymnasium School, Reining posted a 6-0, 6-2 triumph at number five singles and teamed up with sophomore Rachel Aftandilian (Watertown, Mass./Watertown) for an 8-2 win at the number two doubles spot for Head Coach Doug Chapman’s squad.

UMass Dartmouth, which stands at 1-1 both overall and in league play in the early going, returns to action on Thursday, September 13th when the Corsairs entertain Johnson & Wales in a non-league dual-match on the UMD Courts beginning at 3:30 pm EDT.
