Mikinzee Salo of St. Catherine University in St. Paul was named the MIAC Women's Tennis Athlete of the Week Tuesday.

The Wildcats' senior from Brainerd won all six of her combined singles and doubles matches last week on the team's trip to Orlando, Fla., and reached a significant career milestone with her 100th dual-match victory.

Salo's big week started with her scoring both of her team's points in a 7-2 loss to Hamilton. She was an 8-2 winner at No. 1 doubles, then rallied to win a thriller at No. 1 singles, 0-6, 6-4, 10-3.

She then helped her team sweep Elmhurst (9-0) with a 6-3, 6-2, No. 1 singles win and an 8-4 No. 1 doubles win.

Salo then earned career wins No. 100 and 101 with an 8-0 sweep at No. 1 doubles and a 6-0, 6-3, win at No. 1 singles in SCU's 9-0 victory over Hollins. She is now 101-32 in her St. Kate's career in dual matches.
