Champion Named CIAA Tennis Player of the Week


CHARLOTTE, NC – For the second straight week, a Winston-Salem State Rams tennis player has been honored as the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Tennis Player of the Week. This week, WSSU senior Tay'lor Champion was honored as the CIAA Tennis Player of the Week.

She brought home the honor after some great performances in the Rams' two matches last week. She was undefeated in singles play and she also went 1-1 in doubles play for a 3-1 overall record. In doubles play, she joined sophomore Avion Harris, last week's CIAA Player of the Week, for a 6-4 doubles win at Fayetteville State and she followed the effort with a 6-4, 6-1 win in singles play. She also had a 6-5, 6-5 singles win against Averett that clinched the match win for the Rams.

Champion and the Rams will return to action, Sunday, when the team heads to Raleigh, N.C. to take on the Shaw Lady Bears in a 2:00 p.m. match. For more information on Rams tennis, contact the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations at (336) 750-2143 or log on to
