MAC Co-Female Scholar Athlete of the Week: January 21 – January 27, 2013
Bowling Green State University Emily Reuland (W. Tennis)
Emily Reuland (Backstroke, Junior, 3.92, Pre-Exercise Science) was a perfect 4-0 as the Bowling Green tennis team won a pair of matches in Chicagoland over the weekend. Reuland won matches at the top singles and top doubles flights as the Falcons posted a 6-1 win over Drake and a 7-0 victory over Chicago State. In Saturday’s Drake match, Reuland teamed with classmate Nikki Chiricosta for an 8-2 doubles win, then downed the Bulldogs’ Nell Boyd at the top singles flight. The next morning vs. Chicago State, Reuland and senior Maddy Eccleston posted an 8-3 doubles win, and the junior then topped Karyn Emeralda in straight sets.
On the season, Reuland has an overall record of 28-12, ranking her second on the team in wins. Her 13-5 singles record ties her for the Bowling Green lead, and she has the second-best doubles mark on the squad, with a 15-7 record. Just a junior, she already ranks 20th in school history in career singles wins, with 61. Reuland is 23rd all-time at the school with 56 doubles victories, and her career total of 117 combined wins ties her for 21st at Bowling Green. The Falcons are 3-1 this season, and Bowling Green has won three consecutive matches after a season-opening loss on the road against No. 19 Notre Dame.
The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during the week’s competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference’s faculty athletic representatives.
