SUU’s Nassik earns Big Sky tennis honors


OGDEN– Southern Utah women’s tennis player Ghita Nassik was awarded the Big Sky Player of the Week award after recent stellar performances.

Nassik is on a six match win-streak in the singles competition, four of which are against Big Sky opponents.

This will be the second time in women’s tennis program history a player has won this award, the last time being Veronika Rogova in 2013.

Against Northern Colorado, Nassik and Mikala Lowrance breezed through their doubles match winning 6-1 at the top position. The junior followed up with a 6-4, 7-5 win at No. 1 singles as Southern Utah defeated Northern Colorado 6-1

Nassik came out against Montana State and won 7-5 at No. 1 doubles to clinch the doubles point for Southern Utah. The native of Mohammedia, Morocco, once again came out with a win at No. 1 singles winning 6-7, 7-6, 10-6.

This is the first Player of the Week honor in Nassik’s career. The Thunderbirds are back in action this weekend as they host Montana.
