After earning the Boston University women's tennis team's first singles win over a top-100 nationally-ranked opponent in five years, junior Johanna Hyoty has been named Student-Athlete of the Week.

The Tampere, Finland native opened the weekend with a three-set win over No. 70 North Texas' Kseniya Bardabush, a 2014 C-USA All-Conference First Team honoree.

The reigning Patriot League Player of the Year then rallied from a set down to upset No. 60 Boston College's 61st-ranked Jessica Wacnik, 3-6, 7-5, 1-0(8). Wacnik entered the match as the Northeast region's top singles player with Hyoty at No. 15.
