Indianna Spink continues to stand out among SEC women’s tennis rookies, earning her third SEC Freshman of the Week honor in just six weeks.

Freshman Indianna Spink continues to stand out among SEC women’s tennis rookies, earning her third SEC Freshman of the Week honor in just six weeks.

The Razorbacks improved to 9-0 on the season after defeating Memphis (4-3) and Missouri (4-2) this weekend. Arkansas is off to its best start since 2005 and currently stands as the only remaining undefeated team in the SEC.

A staple for the Hogs in the No. 2 position, Spink took down Laura Bente of Memphis 6-4, 6-2 and Ellie Wright of Missouri 6-3, 7-5.

Both of Spink’s wins helped Arkansas clinch the back-to-back wins against the Hogs’ opponents.

Against Wright, Spink trailed two games to five, then rallied to win five-straight games en route to her 7-5 second-set win and straight-set match victory.

Spink becomes the first Razorback in program history to win SEC Freshman of the Week thrice during her rookie campaign and brings Arkansas’ program total to 16 honors.

In doubles play, Spink and her teammate Morgan Cross defeated Aran Teixido Garcia and Katherine Cao of Memphis 6-3 on Friday (Feb. 26).

The duo is now entering the week ahead riding a six-match doubles win streak.

The Razorbacks return to Fayetteville for a Friday-Sunday series against SEC foes, No. 10 Vanderbilt and Kentucky.

Friday’s match against the Commodores at the Billingsley Tennis Center is set to begin at 3 p.m.
