JMTA’s own Jessica Golovin, who now attends Louisiana State University, was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week after her performance in the LSU’s victory over Nicholls and Southern, the conference office announced on Wednesday, January 20,2016.
Jessica began training at SPORTIME/JMTA in 2010 and still trains at the Randall’s Island facility during her college breaks.
In her first dual match play as a Lady Tiger, Golovin defeated Julia Melendez of Nicholls 6-1, 6-4 to clinch the match. The New York native returned in the afternoon to defeat Southern’s Darnesha Moore 6-0, 6-4 and complete the sweep of the Jaguars.
Golovin is No. 52 in the ITA singles rankings and compiled a 9-3 record, including a 4-1 mark against ranked foes thus far.
Golovin and the Lady Tigers team will take on DePaul on Saturday at 3 p.m. CT at Georgia Tech’s Byers Tennis Complex.
