COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - San Diego State senior women's tennis player Laura Antonaña Iriarte (San Sebastián, Spain) has been named Mountain West Player of the Week, the conference announced on Friday. It is the third time this season Antonaña Iriarte has earned the award.

The San Sebastián, Spain native upset California's 26th-ranked Anett Schutting in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, during last week's road dual match on March 7. Antonaña Iriarte, now ranked No. 37 in the nation, picked up one of two points for the Aztecs in the match, and was the only singles player to earn a victory.

The senior is 9-3 in singles action this dual season, and has won two of her last three matches. In addition, Antonana Iriarte is 2-2 against ranked opponents, each of which was ranked in the top 26 in the country.

San Diego State plays host to No. 75 Louisville this afternoon at Aztec Tennis Center, beginning at 2 p.m. PT, in the first of a three-match homestand.
