Senior Leslie Damion was named the Golden1/ucsbgauchos.com Student-Athlete of the Week Monday after her clutch performance in the Gauchos' upset victory over No. 51 UC Irvine Apr. 7.
With the match coming down to Damion's No. 5 singles bout with freshman Ali Borowicz, Damion came from behind in the third game for the No. 5 singles point and the match, besting her opponent 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (5) in a third-game tiebreaker. Damion also paired with Mio Fukushima in No. 3 doubles to complete No. 69 UCSB's doubles sweep over Irvine.
