LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's Sven Poslusny and Hailey Swenson have been named the Verizon Wireless Men's and Women's Western Athletic Conference Tennis Players of the Week, respectively, for Jan. 18-24. This is the first-ever honor for both.
Poslusny, a freshman from Loerrach, Germany, helped Utah State to a 1-1 record last week by going undefeated in both singles and doubles.

In a close 4-3 loss at No. 51 Utah on Jan. 23, he posted a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 2 singles and a 9-7 win at No. 2 doubles.
Swenson, a junior from North Salt Lake City, Utah (Woodscross HS), helped Utah State pick up a 5-2 season-opening win over Idaho State on Jan. 21, as she earned wins at No. 1 singles and doubles. She defeated the Bengals' Lisel Lewis, 6-0, 6-2. In doubles, she teamed with freshman Jaclyn West to earn the Aggies' only doubles victory, an 8-3 win over ISU's Lisel Lewis and Risa Fujiwara at the No. 1 position.
Poslusny and the USU men's team will compete Friday, Jan. 29 at University of Nevada, Las Vegas while Swenson and the Aggie women's team will host Gonzaga on Saturday, Jan. 30 at the Sports Academy and Racquet Club, in their next action.
