ELON, N.C. – Elon University women’s tennis freshmen Lizette Reding and Alison O’Dea have been named the CAA Doubles Team of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday, April 7.

Against the Tribe, Reding and O’Dea defeated Lisa Fukutoku and Alisia Manolescu, 6-2, to clinch the doubles point for Elon. The victory moved them to 6-3 in No. 2 doubles and gave them their seventh doubles win in their last ten matches.
