Brooks Green Named A10 Men’s Tennis Rookie of the Week
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Capping off a busy week for the Davidson men’s tennis team, freshman Brooks Green was named today the Atlantic 10 Men’s Tennis Rookie of the Week for matches played from Feb. 11-17, as announced by the league office.
Green is the second Wildcat rookie to win the weekly award this year, joining fellow classmate Sam Kavarana, who has claimed the rookie of the week twice.
The Mobile, Ala., native went 3-1 in singles play last week in helping lead the ‘Cats to a 3-1 record in matches against Gardner-Webb (W, 4-3), Wingate (W, 6-1), North Carolina (W, 4-3) and Furman (L, 1-6).
After falling in a three-setter to start the week (3-6, 6-1, 2-6), Green ran off three consecutive dominating straight-set wins. He scored a 6-2, 6-2 decision at No. 5 vs. Wingate Saturday, and then moved up to No. 4 later in the day and nailed down a 6-2, 6-1 victory vs. N.C. A&T.
Green wrapped things up for the week by scoring the lone team point vs. Furman, a 6-0, 7-5 win at No. 5 to push his season record to 6-3. The three-match win streak to close out the week is a season best.
Davidson travels to Philadelphia, Pa., for a pair of A-10 matches this weekend against Saint Joseph’s (Feb. 22) and La Salle (Feb. 23).
