Iowa women’s tennis player Ruth Seaborne has been named Big Ten Athlete of the Week for the second time this season.

The London native led the Hawks to a win over No. 42 Illinois last week after scoring a straight-set win at the top singles position and a 8-2 win at the No. 1 spot in doubles play.

The victory was the senior’s fifth straight, improving her record to 14-5 overall, 7-2 in the Big Ten.  
Seaborne is the first Hawkeye since Sonja Molnar in 2010 to win the award two times in the same season.

Iowa will close its regular season at home this week with Big Ten matches against Ohio State and Penn State at the Hawkeye Tennis & Recreation Complex.
