GREENSBORO, NC – Clemson women’s tennis player Alix Lacelarie was named the ACC Women’s Tennis Player of the Week. The sophomore from Villeneuve-Les-Beziers, France, earned the honor for the second time this season after defeating two higher-ranked players in the Tigers’ final two matches of the ACC regular season.

Clemson’s second-seeded Lacelarie, ranked 106th by the ITA in singles, was 4-0 on the week, helping lead the Tigers to a second-place regular season finish in the ACC. Lacelarie upset two higher-ranked opponents at flight two singles. She defeated #18 Amanda Johnson of Duke by a score of 6-3, 7-5, then won a 6-3, 6-3 decision over #67 Aniela Mojzis of North Carolina. In doubles play, Lacelarie teamed up with Daniela Alvarez to upset #6 DeRoo and Johnson of Duke by a score of 8-2, then defeated North Carolina’s Bairos and Mejia 8-6.

Lacelarie has upset a higher-ranked singles opponent in her last four consecutive singles matches. She has a 15-4 overall dual record in singles and is 7-1 in ACC singles play. Lacalarie is 19-1 in doubles dual matches on the season, and she and Alvarez are undefeated (15-0) in matches at flight two doubles.

The Tiger women’s tennis team returns to action this weekend, as Clemson travels to Raleigh to compete in the ACC Tournament.
