Iowa sophomore Sonja Molnar was named Big Ten Player of the Week on Tuesday following a successful two-game stretch at the Hawkeye Tennis & Recreation Complex over the weekend.

Starting on March 6 against Missouri, Molnar won her singles match (6-0, 6-4) after she and senior Merel Beelen won their doubles contest, 8-4.

Molnar’s victory on Sunday had fans on edge. In a match that lasted more than 30 minutes, the native of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, defeated singles opponent Anna Redecsi of DePaul (6-4, 7-6 [7-5]), to give the Hawkeyes a 4-3 win over the No. 24-ranked Blue Demons.

Molnar also helped her team in doubles play. Facing the 10th-ranked duo in the nation in Redecsi and Selma Salkovic, Molnar and Beelen won the match, 9-7, to help Iowa to win the doubles point.

Molnar, who plays in the No. 1 spot, improved her record to 9-1 in doubles play, 18-6 overall.
The Hawkeyes will resume play in San Diego against Wichita State on March 17.
