CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Presbyterian College men’s tennis freshman Diego Manzanas (Madrid, Spain) has been named the Big South Conference Crons Brand Freshman of the Week, the League announced Tuesday.
The honor marks the second straight for Manzanas (in weeks PC has played) and the fourth for the Blue Hose men's tennis program this season.
Manzanas went 3-0 last week in singles action against USC Upstate, Richmond and Davidson. He notched a pair of victories in the No. 6 flight against Upstate’s Pedro Carvalho (6-1, 6-1) and Davidson’ Alex Howard (6-3, 6-1). From the No. 4 position, he bested Richmond’s Canyon Teague 6-2, 6-4.
The victories helped PC knock off Upstate, Richmond and Davidson for the first time since the program moved to Division I.
The Blue Hose return to action on Saturday when they host Radford in the Big South Conference opener at 1 p.m. at the Templeton Tennis Courts. The team will offer free pizza and a free kids' tennis clinic.
