Junior Natallia Pintusava has been named Second Team All-Big Ten as announced by the Big Ten Conference office tonight. Pintusava also earned second team All-Big Ten honors as a freshman and was picked to the All- Big Ten First Team last season.
Pintusava has been one of the Gophers’ top players during the 2012-13 season, competing at the No. 1 spots in both singles and doubles. Heading into the Big Ten Tournament, she garnered a 14-22 overall record with a 5-6 mark in league play. Against nationally-ranked opponents, Pintusava had tallied a 2-4 record with the two victories coming against No. 57 Petra Januskova (Penn State) and No. 54 Kelsey Dieters (Ohio State). On the doubles side, Pintusava has posted a 12-19 overall doubles record.
Sophomore Tereza Brichacova also garnered recognition from the conference office, picking up the Sportsmanship Award. The honor is given to one person from each team in the conference who best exemplifies ethical behavior on the court and good citizenship outside the competition setting. Brichacova is currently 16-18 in singles (5-6 B1G), mostly while playing at No. 2, and 17-16 in doubles (4-6 B1G).
