It is the second career player of the week honor from the USA South for Hall.
She also becomes the first Covenant women's tennis player to garner a weekly accolade this season. 


The junior from Orlando, Fla., posted a 2-0 record at both No. 1 doubles and No. 1 singles on the week to help Covenant to a 2-0 record. In singles play, Hall surrendered just one point in her two matches. She defeated LaGrange's Jenna Eppes 6-0, 6-1 and then knocked off Emory & Henry's Lauren Riner 6-0, 6-0. 

Hall teamed up with Esther Eddy for a pair of doubles wins at the top spot. The duo took down LaGrange's Eppes and Elizabeth Knott 8-2 before coming away with an 8-0 win over Riner and Savanna Summers of Emory & Henry. 

For the season, Hall is 5-2 in singles play, all coming at the No. 1 spot, and has won three straight overall. Hall and Eddy have combined for a 4-5 record in doubles play. 

Covenant (5-5) has won three straight matches going into Friday's home match against Agnes Scott to open USA South play. Match time is set for 4 p.m. on Lookout Mountain.
