Hernandez Sweeps Little East Weekly Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – For the second straight week the Little East Conference Player and Rookie of the Week honors went to a member of the UMass Boston men's tennis team.  However unlike last week with a player earning each award, this week both awards went to freshman David Hernandez (Bogota, Colombia) for another stellar week of play.

Hernandez, who has been the number one singles and doubles player for the Beacons all season long, posted a 3-0 mark at first singles.  He recorded a 7-6, 6-3 win over Salem State University, a 6-4, 6-2 win over Eastern Nazarene College, and a 7-6, 1-6, 10-8 decision over Western Connecticut State University.  He also closed out the week with a 2-1 record in doubles play with his teammate Charles Lai (Boston, Mass.).
