AMHERST, Mass. - After leading the UMass tennis team to a 2-1 showing down in Charleston, S.C., last week, senior Jessica Podlofsky was named the Atlantic 10 Performer of the Week as announced Thursday.

The native of Port Washington, N.Y. posted a 3-0 week in singles action at No. 5 and No. 6 singles as UMass posted wins over Georgia Southern and Tulane.

Podlofsky's lone win in the loss against College of Charleston on Wednesday broke the UMass program's all-time career singles wins record with her 68th victory.

On Friday, Podlofsky battled back after losing the opening set against Margaux Hyman of Tulane to win the second set and the tie-breaker set. Her win was the match winner for the Minutewomen in a 4-3 victory over the Green Wave.

For the 2013-14 season, the senior is now 9-10 overall including a 5-7 record in dual matches and a three-match win streak. For her career, she is 69-40 overall.

The Minutewomen will take the weekend off before returning to action on Wednesday, April 2 at Quinnipiac (3 PM). UMass is now 7-7 on the season including a 1-1 mark against Atlantic 10 competition.
