LAFAYETTE, La. – In a vote by the league’s head coaches and announced at the annual banquet on Wednesday (April 17), senior Veronique Luksich was named Second Team All-Conference.

“Veronique is most deserving of this award as she has excelled on and off the court her entire four years at UALR,” head coach Abby Wilson said. “We had a goal at the beginning of the semester for her to win the conference award and it is an honor to see all her hard work and determination pay off.”

It is the second All-Conference selection for Luksich in her UALR career. She teamed up with Rebecca Van Den Houte in 2011 to earn All-SBC Doubles accolades in 2011.

Luksich finished the season with a 14-7 mark at first singles, including a victory over SBC First Team Singles member Karoline Grymel of Troy. She was the second Trojan to earn SBC Player of the Week honors this season, joining teammate Kamilla Galieva, on March 27 after a 6-2, 2-6, 10-8 win over Elena Kordolaimi of Houston.

UALR plays FIU in the first round of the 2013 SBC Tournament Thursday (April 18) at 8:30 a.m.
