North Carolina’s Ronnie Schneider and Miami’s Clementina Riobueno earn honors
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – North Carolina’s Ronnie Schneider and Miami’s Clementina Riobueno have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Tennis Players of the Week.
Schneider, a sophomore from Bloomington, Indiana, led the Tar Heels to a perfect 2-0 team record on the week by going 2-0 in singles play and 1-0 in doubles action. He won singles matches in both matches of a doubleheader Saturday, Feb. 28 vs. Minnesota and The Citadel, helping the Tar Heels end a four-match losing streak which included losses to the No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 10 teams.
Riobueno, a junior from Barquisimeto, Venezuela, was stellar this weekend, taking both of her singles matches in straight sets while her opponent got to four wins in a set just once to lead Miami to two 7-0 victories over ranked ACC teams. Riobueno and doubles partner Monique Albuquerque, the No. 17 ranked pair in the country, dropped a total of four games in the two matches combined.
