Bianca Aboubakare ’11 walked on the court a Women’s tennis player last Saturday. She walked off it a school record-holder. With a straight-set win, 6-4, 6-0, over Alison Rauh of Davidson College, Aboubakare clinched her 85th career singles victory, breaking a Brown women’s tennis record set nearly 12 years ago by Saranga Sangakkara ’99. Aboubakare — partnered with Jessica Harrow ’14 — also notched her 72nd doubles win on the same day and now needs just one more victory to take sole possession of the career doubles mark.   For her day of record performances, The Herald has named Aboubakare Athlete of the Week.
