The Tornado won her individual No. 1 match as well, 7-5, 6-2 over Lopez.
Brevard's Kayley Duval won the award last week after a strong performance during the spring break trip to Hilton Head. Brevard men's player Heikki Riikonen has also won the award this season.
The South Atlantic Conference Player of the Week is determined by a vote of the league's nine sports information directors.
