Blizard, Roeper Named to NEWMAC Academic All-Conference Team

WESTWOOD, Mass.—A pair of Babson College women's tennis players were honored for their work in the classroom when the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) released its Academic All-Conference team on Thursday morning.

Junior Alexandra Blizard (Dover, Mass.) was named to the squad for the second year in a row, while sophomore Emily Roeper (Belle Mead, N.J.) was recognized for the first time.

Blizard has gone 4-2 in all singles matches and is 3-0 at number six for the Green and White, which is off to its best start in league play since 2003. She also has gone 1-1 in doubles matches and picked up her first victory of the year in last Saturday's 9-0 sweep of Clark.

Roeper has been a mainstay in the lineup this season going 8-3 in all singles matches and 10-1 overall in doubles. She has four wins apiece at fifth and sixth singles to go along with a 6-1 mark in conference play, and has recorded six of her nine dual-match doubles victories against NEWMAC opponents.

Babson (11-2, 7-0 NEWMAC) looks to extend its five-match winning streak when it travels to Connecticut College on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
