WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Senior Pedro Mol of UNCW has been named the Men’s Tennis Singles Player-of-the-Week by the Colonial Athletic Association.
Mol, from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, went 3-0 last week as the 55th-ranked Seahawks reeled off three straight victories to improve to 9-6 on the season.
“Pedro has had a great couple weeks and I’m pleased that he is being recognized by the CAA,” said Mait DuBois, UNCW’s seventh-year head coach. “He had a couple very tight matches go against him and Pedro has done an excellent job working through it and just continuing to work hard. We’re very proud of his progress.”
Mol opened the week by downing Yale’s Martin Svenning, 6-1, 6-3, in UNCW’s 5-2 victory over the Bulldogs and then added a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) decision over UCF’s Armar Hromic as UNCW knocked off the No. 51 Golden Knights, 5-2.
Mol, who has won seven of his last 10 matches, closed out the busy week by topping Binghamton’s Alexander Maisin, 6-2, 6-3, in a 5-1 victory on Sunday over the Bearcats.
The Seahawks are back in action on Friday when Coach Mait DuBois and his club takes on VCU at 2 p.m. in Richmond.
