Walsh Nets Award

Junior tennis player Kelly Walsh has been named WVU's Athlete of the Week for her performance in the Big East conference tournament.

The Chalfont, St. Giles, England native recorded four wins to help WVU to a 2-2 tournament record and a sixth-place finish in the league.

In the opening round against Seton Hall, Walsh defeated Danielle Viola 6-4, 6-0 in singles, then teamed with Raynie Theis for a 9-8 doubles win that sewed up the victory. Walsh then helped WVU record a milestone win against Syracuse, as the Mountaineers posted a 4-2 victory, their first ever over the Orange. After winning her singles match, Walsh again teamed with Theis, this time for an 8-6 win in the number two doubles slot.
