CLINTON, S.C. – Presbyterian College men’s tennis freshman Daniel Stenger was named Big South Freshman of the Week for his performance last week, the league announced on Wednesday afternoon. It is the first such honor for the rookie and the second weekly honor for PC this season.
Stenger went 3-0 in singles action against USC Upstate, Appalachian State and Lee, as the Blue Hose recorded wins in all three matches en route to a flawless week. The rookie opened the week with a 6-1, 6-4 victory at No. 5 at USC Upstate on Wednesday. He followed it up with a 6-0, 7-5 win at No. 5 against Appalachian State on Saturday morning, clinching the 4-3 victory for the Blue Hose.
Stenger capped it off on Saturday afternoon, managing wins in both singles and doubles against Lee University. The native of Mexico City, Mexico paired up with Jaime Castillo-Lopez for a 6-0 victory at No. 2 doubles. He then won 6-3, 6-1 at No. 4 singles in PC’s 6-1 victory over the Flames.
Stenger is the first PC player to earn a Big South Freshman of the Week honor since teammate Castillo-Lopez took the honor on February 15 last season.
