    ST. LOUIS - Southern Illinois women's tennis student-athlete Anita Lee has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Tennis Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday. This is the second time Lee has earned the honor during her career.

    Lee went 4-0 over the weekend to help the Salukis improve to 14-6 and 3-0 in the Missouri Valley. In SIU’s 5-2 win over Northern Iowa, Lee bested Erica Medlin 7-5, 6-1 at the No. 2 slot. Lee then teamed up with fellow senior Korey Love to take the No. 2 doubles match against Lopez/Santos 8-6.

    Against Drake, the Las Vegas, Nev. native defeated Meriel Ante 7-5, 6-3, while winning in doubles 8-2 against Kozulic/Ante, to help Southern Illinois edge the Bulldogs, 4-3.

    Love and Lee moved into a tie for ninth place in program history Sunday when they picked up their 31st career win together.
