Vo was a double-winner to lead Stonehill to an 8-1 win at Saint Anselm College in its lone match of the week on Thursday.

Vo, who has now earned NE-10 Rookie of the Week honors on September 13 and 26, has won all eight of her singles matches early in her first collegiate season, all in NE-10 play, with a 7-0 record at No. 2 singles to go with a victory at No. 1 singles. She has also posted a 6-3 doubles record with four different playing partners, including a 6-2 mark in NE-10 matches.
