BLOOMSBURG- Bloomsburg University women's tennis player Iida Hokkanen (Helsinki, Finland) has been named Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Player of the Week for the period ending April 9.

At No. 3 singles she posted a 6-1, 6-0 victory, and teamed with doubles partner Torie Cunningham (Greenlawn, NY/ Harborfields) to claim an 8-1 triumph. For the year, Hokkanen claims a 12-5 record in singles play.

Blooomsburg, 12-1, 4-0 in the PSAC East, will host the Bloomsburg Duals this weekend starting at 10 a.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday.
