Junior Netter Nabs Award

Despite her team's upset loss in the first round of the Big East tournament, junior tennis player Stacey Percival earned West Virginia's athlete of the week award.

Percival, playing in Tampa, Fla. won both of her singles matches during the event. The Aiken, S.C. native defeated Anela Dujisic of Rutgers 6-3, 6-3, then steamrolled Amanda El-Tobgy of Seton Hall 6-1, 6-0.

The two wins assured Percival of her second consecutive 20-win season for the Mountaineers. West Virginia finished the season 13-12 overall and 7-3 in the Big East regular season. WVU, which finished tenth in the league tournament, was the fifth seed heading in.
