RICHMOND, Va. – After an undefeated week for himself and his team, Virginia Commonwealth University sophomore Max Wennakoski has been named the Colonial Athletic Association's Singles Player of the Week.
Wennakoski led VCU, ranked 56th by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), to a 3-0 week, including wins over South Alabama, South Carolina and 30th-ranked Virginia Tech. The Rams (16-3) have won nine straight matches overall.
Playing on the No. 2 singles court, Wennakoski earned three victories, dropping just one set along the way. He also teamed with Filip Svensson for doubles wins against Virginia Tech and South Carolina.
Wennakoski and the Rams will try to keep rolling on Saturday, March 26 when VCU heads to Norfolk, Va. to battle CAA rival Delaware. The Rams will take on ODU the following day.
