San Antonio - Trinity senior Greg Haugen has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week, after leading the team to a third-place finish at the ITA Indoor Championships last weekend.
Haugen sparked the Tigers to a third-place finish last weekend at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Indoor Championships near Cleveland, Ohio. The fifth-seeded Tigers (8-3) took out No. 4 California Lutheran University 7-2 in the quarterfinals, lost 3-6 to top seeded Washington University-St. Louis in the semifinals, and bounced back to defeat host Case Western Reserve University (seeded seventh) 7-2 in the third-place match.
In the course of the tournament, Haugen went 2-1 at No. 3 singles, and was undefeated at 3-0 in No. 2 doubles. Haugen earned singles victories over California Lutheran and Case Western, while falling to Washington-St. Louis.
Haugen stands at 7-3 in singles this season, and is 6-2 in doubles competition.
Trinity, ranked eighth in the NCAA Division III, travels to Austin, Texas, Friday, to play St. Edward’s University, ranked No. 24 in Division II. The dual match begins at 3:00 p.m.
