Simone Pärn - October Female Athlete of the Month
Simone Pärn was on fire in October.
She led the Firebirds with three awards in the month - two East Coast Conference Player of the Week recognitions, and she was named First team All-Conference at the conclusion of the season.
She finished the month with a 6-1 record, all from the number 1 singles and doubles positions. Her only loss came against the eventual ECC Player of the Year, NYIT’s Barbie Quagliardi. Pärn ultimately avenged that loss in the ECC Semifinals when she handed Quagliardi her only dual match loss of the season, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4. Parn would finish the season with a singles record of 11-2 overall and a doubles record of 10-3.
