Cristelle Grier, NU
SR, Epsom, England/Putney
Northwestern's Cristelle Grier finished her career, which is one of the best in Big Ten history, by winning both her singles and doubles matches against Ohio State in the final regular season match of the year. At No. 1 singles, the three-time All-American allowed only one point to Ohio State's Sonia Ruzimovsky, winning 6-1, 6-0. Earlier in the day, Grier teamed with junior Alexis Prousis to take down Caitlin O'Keefe and Angela DiPastina, 8-5 at No. 1 doubles. Grier ends her regular season Big Ten career with a 43-1 record.
Grier's latest weekly honor, the final award of 2006, is the sixth of Grier career. She earned one accolade earlier this season on February 8.
