Sophomore Nikita Berger of the Francis Marion University women's tennis team has been named the McDonald's Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Feb. 4-10, 2019.

The Florence area McDonald’s Owner/Operators are proud to support the Francis Marion Student Athlete of the Week! Go Patriots!

Berger picked up four wins to help FMU to a second-place finish in the City of Florence College Tennis Invitational.

She began her week with a pair of wins as the Patriots opened the season with a 4-0 win over Newberry College. The Hartsville native followed that up with two more wins in the Patriots’ 4-2 victory over Lander University in the semifinals, including capturing the match-clinching singles point.

FMU (2-1) returns to the court on Saturday (Feb. 16) to take on Erskine College.
