Kandinata blanked Longwood's Marta Pinyol 6-0, 6-0 at the No. 1 position in singles play. The victory was her first of the spring season and helped the Spider squad earn their first victory in spring play.
Kandinata partnered with senior Alexandra Smyth in doubles to defeat Malin Allgurin and Sarah Moomau 8-1.
Kandinata was named the 2012 A-10 Most Outstanding Rookie Performer after a strong performance at the A-10 tournament. The Performer of the Week nod, however, is the first of her career and the first Performer of the Week award for the Spiders since 2011.
Richmond will be back in action all weekend with matches at Temple, St. Joseph's and Pennsylvania.
