SPARTANBURG, S.C. (April 6, 2016) – ETSU men’s tennis player David Biosca (Sant Fruitos De Bage, Spain) was named the Southern Conference Men’s Tennis Player of the Week Wednesday for all matches played between March 28 and April 3. The player of the week award is the second for the Bucs this season and the third in Biosca’s career.
“David has been a rock for us all season,” ETSU Head Coach Yaser Zaatini said. “I’m proud of him and happy that he was honored with the player of the week. He is the real meaning of a high class student-athlete.”
Biosca helped the Bucs win a pair of road matches over the weekend at Furman and at No. 63 UNC Wilmington. Biosca, who came in at No. 85 in the latest Oracle/ITA National Singles Rankings Tuesday, went a combined 4-0 against the Paladins and Seahawks. With the two singles victories, Biosca has won his last six matches and has gone 9-1 in the team’s last 10 contests.
Biosca and the rest of the Buccaneers return home Wednesday afternoon to take on No. 74 Middle Tennessee State. First serve is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Dave Mullins Tennis Complex.
