Amy Lopes Honored by Little East Conference

Sept. 14, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Junior Amy Lopes (Dartmouth, MA/Dartmouth HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's tennis team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Lopes was named Little East Conference Women's Tennis Player of the Week.

Lopes defeated Kristine Brammer at number one singles, 6-1, 6-1, and teamed with sophomore Courtney Morey (Mashpee, MA/Mashpee HS) to defeat Katelyn Oullette and Tegan Talbot at number one doubles, 8-4, as the defending champion Corsairs opened their LEC schedule Saturday by winning at Southern Maine, 7-2.

"Amy's well-deserving," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Ralph Perry. "She's been playing well at the start of her junior year, and she's the engine that makes our car run."

UMass Dartmouth is 2-0 and will return to action when they visit Plymouth State Friday.
