Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University junior Amy Ingle (Battle Creek/Hastings) has been named this week's Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Women's Tennis Player of the Week as announced Wednesday (Oct. 14) by the league office.

Ingle keyed the Bulldogs’ thrilling 5-4 league home victory over West Michigan rival Grand Valley State last Friday (Oct. 9) by winning both of her matches at the top flights in the lineup. The 5-4 Ingle teamed up with fellow junior Tiffany Rheynard (Kalamazoo/Gull Lake) for a 8-4 doubles triumph over the Lakers’ combination of Darylann Trout and Chelsea Johnston at the number one spot.

She then defeated Tara Hayes 6-7 (6-7), 6-0, 6-0 in singles play at the top flight. Her efforts helped the Bulldogs snap a five-match series’ losing streak to the Lakers. Ingle owns a 4-3 overall singles mark and is 5-2 in doubles play to date this campaign.

Ingle recorded a 12-12 overall singles record and was 12-11 in doubles play last year en route to being chosen as the team's Most Valuable Player Award recipient. An All-GLIAC Second Team pick last campaign, Ingle won four of her nine GLIAC matches at the number one flight in the FSU lineup during the 2008-09 season. Meanwhile, she registered a 5-4 league doubles record in dual action at the top spot in the lineup while pairing with different partners a year ago.

Currently, Ingle owns a 27-26 career singles ledger and is 25-28 in doubles action during her Bulldog career to date.

The Bulldogs are next scheduled to visit Ashland on Friday, Oct. 16, for a 3 p.m. (EDT) league encounter in Ashland, Ohio. FSU then takes on Tiffin on Saturday, Oct. 17, for an 11 a.m. (EDT) league tilt in Tiffin, Ohio. The two matches are the Bulldogs' final ones prior to the GLIAC Tournament on Oct. 24-25 in Lansing, Mich.
