Koropchak was named the NJAC Women's Tennis Player of the Week, and freshman Hrusko was selected the NJAC Women's Cross Country Rookie of the Week. Koropchak, a junior, and Hrusko earned their respective awards for the first time in their careers.

She won 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2 singles in the 6-3 win over Georgian Court on Sept. 5, and teamed with Kristy Faren to win 8-6 in No. 2 doubles.
