Player of the Week: Kentucky's Justina Mikulskyte won her singles and doubles matches on Senior Day on Sunday. In doubles, Mikulskyte and her season-long partner Parazinskaite moved to 7-0 against nationally-ranked doubles opponents with their 6-1 victory over the No. 57 doubles pair of MSU's Adaloglou/Racine. The UK pair allowed the ranked foes to only one game, and led UK to the doubles point. In singles on Sunday, Mikulskyte defeated No. 67 Emma Antonaki by a 6-3, 6-2 decision. She was also the deciding factor in UK's win over No. 46 Ole Miss on Friday. Tied at 3-3, Mikulskyte came from behind to force a 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-3 finish over Machalova to conclude a 4.5+ hour dual match in UK's favor.

Freshman of the Week: Texas A&M's Jayci Goldsmith earned a ranked singles and doubles win on the road at LSU last weekend. Partnered with Tatiana Makarova to earn their highest ranked win of their career by defeating the defending NCAA Doubles Champion, Richardson/Golovin 6-4. Goldsmith and Makarova are an impressive 14-6 on court one this spring to pace the Aggies in dual wins. Goldsmith's singles win over Golovin was her second straight over a ranked opponent, improving her season record to 15-5 in dual matches and 24-7 overall. Her 15 dual victories are the second most by an Aggie this season. (
