MAAC Women's Player of the Week
MONICA YAJIMA, FAIRFIELD
So., Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich
Monica Yajima was 2-0 in Fairfield's one match of the week against conference foe Marist College. The sophomore paired with classmate Carolina Koladzyn at No. 1 doubles to play one of the toughest matches of the day against Raynor and McCarthy. The two Stags were able to pull out a victory against last year's All-MAAC First Team No. 1 duo, 8-7 (8-6). In singles, Yajima played in her usual one spot against Raynor battling through three sets. After dropping the first set 4-6, Yajima came back hard to defeat her Marist opponent 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. In duals, Monica is currently 11-2 at No. 1 singles and 3-0 in conference.
