A senior from Nassau, The Bahamas, Griffin led the Vikings to the Heart of America Conference Tournament title and their second appearance in the NAIA Championships in four years -- throughout which she has been the team's No. 1 singles player.
Griffin posted an 87-19 record in singles during her four-year career at Valley and was a three-time all-HAAC first-team selection.
This year Griffin received the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award for the Central Region. The award recognizes players that excel both on and off the court, with only four women recognized nationally.
"Elanqua is a leader for our team," said MVC coach Ryan Carney. "She recognizes the importance of putting 'team' first."
