MVC Freshman of the Year Playing Tennis a Long Way From Home

When looking at the Purple Aces women's tennis roster, you'll notice the majority of the team isn't from the United States, and that includes freshman Diana Tkachenko.

Tkachenko grew up in Moscow, Russia, but in order to pursue a college tennis career, she made the decision to go to school in America.

Diana is only a freshman, but she has already been a big contributor for the Lady Aces.

After a 31-8 overall record and a 6-1 mark in conference, Tkachenko was named the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Year.

Diana also helped the Lady Aces finish tied for second in the MVC regular season.
