CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Presbyterian College freshman Danny Bruce (Marietta, Ga.) has been selected as the Big South Conference The Crons Brand Freshman of the Week for matches played Feb. 4-10, it was announced today by the League office.
Bruce rolled through a pair of fifth-flight matches over the weekend. The Blue Hose first knocked off Zack Lewis of College of Charleston in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2, before dispatching Furman's Tyler Droll in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1.
The honor marks the first such accolade of Bruce's collegiate career. Teammate William O'Connell (Nadi, Fiji) was named Big South Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week earlier this spring.
Bruce boasts a 5-3 record in singles matches this year and a 2-0 marker in doubles play.
This weekend the Blue Hose travel to NC Central on Saturday before opening Big South Conference play on Sunday at Longwood.
