Pacific Women's Tennis: Goehl Earns Second Athlete of the Week Honor

Apr 14, 2010

Freshman Christina Goehl (Karlsruhe, Germany) was named Big West Womens Tennis Athlete of the Week for the period ending April 11, the league announced Wednesday. Goehl went undefeated in singles play against conference opponents to earn her second athlete of the week award this season.

I think its well deserved, said Head Coach Bob Chiene. She really beat the girl who has been playing No. 1 all year for Cal State Northridge. And then to fight through being three match points down and then win it in a 16-14 match tie-break is epic.

Goehl forced a match tie-break against Dahra Zamudio from UC Davis after dropping the first set. Her 2-6, 7-5, 1-0 (14) win over Zamudio marked her seventh straight singles win over a conference opponent. She is 11-7 overall this spring and boasts a 6-1 record against Big West opponents.

I think shes well deserving and Im appreciative other coaches felt the same way, added Chiene.
