Birmingham, Ala. -
Auburn sophomore Fani Chifchieva was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the SEC announced today.
Chifchieva's nod comes on the heels of a six-match win streak and a win over No. 16 Katie Rybakova of Florida State. She also defeated Annabell Bares of Troy University 6-1, 6-1, the fifth time this season Chifchieva hasn't given up more than two sets in a match. This is Chifchieva's second selection as SEC Player of the Week, with the first coming on March 20, 2007.
Chifchieva and the Tigers return to action on Saturday, Feb. 23, for a double-header with Jacksonville State and Southern Mississippi. Auburn will face the Gamecocks at 10 a.m., followed by the Eagles at 6 p.m. Admission to all home matches is free and live stats are available at www.auburntigers.com.
