Jessica Francis Named Little East Tennis Rookie of the Week

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. -- Bridgewater State College freshman Jessica Francis has been selected as the Little East Conference (LEC) Women's Tennis Rookie of the Week.  Francis received the honor for her performance on the courts last week in BSC's matches against Little East rivals Plymouth State and UMass-Boston.

Francis quickly impacted the Little East women's tennis scene as she won both her singles matches on the week and teamed with Angie Bizzozero to post an 8-6 win at No. 1 doubles in the Bears' 7-2 victory over Plymouth.  Francis recorded a straight set win at third singles versus the Panthers, and then moved up to first singles and earned a straight set win in BSC's 8-1 win over UMass.

A native of West Barnstable, Massachusetts, Francis is currently a perfect 3-0 in singles play this season.  She is also 2-1 competing exclusively at first doubles along with doubles partner Angie Bizzozero.
