DENVER, CO - New Mexico State women’s tennis junior Rimpledeep Kaur was named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the second-consecutive week on Tuesday.

This is the third weekly conference honor for Kaur, two now during dual play and once during the fall slate, and the fourth overall for New Mexico State.

Kaur led NM State to a 2-1 record in Las Cruces last weekend when the Aggies hosted the first WAC pod. Individually, the Jassowal, India, native went undefeated in both singles and doubles action. The junior went 3-0 in singles play against WAC opponents, all at the No. 1 position, and led her Iowa State counterpart before the match was clinched.

In doubles action, Kaur went 4-0 at the No. 2 slot with teammate Marie-Pier Thiffault. Kaur and Thiffault didn’t allow more than four points to their opponents. Kaur has now won five-straight singles matches and four-straight doubles contests heading into this week’s action.

New Mexico State is schedule to square off against Wyoming in a non-conference matchup at noon on Thursday, March 23. The Aggies will then take on Battle of I-25 rival New Mexico at noon on Saturday, March 25 in #Aggiequerque.
