With a 4-0 record and a two-match sweep of rival Jacksonville, Katarina Raicevic and Courtney Miller of North Florida were handed ASUN Conference Beach Volleyball Pair of the Week honors, as announced by the league office this Tuesday.

Raicevic and Miller helped the Ospreys to a 4-0 record this weekend, as the top UNF flight went undefeated over four matches. Their performance started with a doubleheader sweep of cross-city rival Jacksonville University on Friday. The duo dropped the Dolphins’ number one over three sets in the morning while finishing off the afternoon contest in straight frames. Raicevic and Miller also took wins against non-conference foes College of Charleston and UNC Wilmington, as the Ospreys tallied 3-2 team wins against both sides. After losing to the Seahawks’ top seed Tanna Aljoe and Nicole Lott earlier in the year, the UNF duo earned some payback on Saturday, downing their opponents in three sets. Raicevic and Miller move to 4-2 in conference play with their wins against JU, and their overall record of 12-8 leads the team.

North Florida travels to Conway, S.C. this coming weekend to faceoff with Mercer and Coastal Carolina. Raicevic and Miller posted a 3-0 record against the Bears last year while playing in the third seed and compete against the Chanticleers for the first time.
