Barksdale Named Bobcat Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior Kayla Barksdale (Augusta, Ga.) of the Georgia College women’s tennis team has been named the Bobcat Athlete of the Week after her performance during the week ending March 10.

Barksdale went 3-0 in the No. 3 singles slot, having her best week of the 2013 spring season. She won all three of her matches in straight sets, only losing eight points all week.

The senior also continued to play at the No. 1 doubles slot, winning 8-5 over Wingate’s top duo.

The Bobcats will be back in action Wednesday, March 13 at 3 p.m. against the Concord University Mountain Lions at the Centennial Center Tennis Facility.
