cheers for Anna!
FAYETTEVILLE- Senior tennis player Anna Dybicz
was named to the 2004 Southeastern Conference Good Works Team by the league
office Tuesday evening.
A native of Jankoping, Sweden, Dybicz was
added to the list of exceptional student-athletes
for her work during the holiday season in which she helped purchase and
distribute gifts to underprivileged families throughout Northwest Arkansas.
Dybicz also used her helping hands to decorate for the Christmas banquet.
A former member of the Lady Razorback Student-Athlete
Advisory committee, she was also a volunteer at the 2004 American Heart
Association Walk that took place on the University of Arkansas campus.
"I'm extremely proud of Anna. She has led
this team both on and off the court from the very first day of the season,"
said head coach Michael Hegarty.
As a player, Dybicz leads the team in overall
wins, 13, SEC wins, five, and is likely to play on the No. 1 court this
Thursday when Arkansas takes on Louisiana State University at the SEC
Tournament in Nashville, Tennessee. In her last nine matches, Dybicz has
won seven including five SEC contests.
As a student, Dybicz, along with teammate
Melissa Cornett, posted 4.0 GPAs for the 2003 fall semester. Dybicz is
on track to graduate in 2004 with a degree in finance.
