BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Lee University Tennis teams claimed two of the four weekly honors awarded by the Gulf South Conference Wednesday afternoon. Micaela Belen Maiz was named the GSC women’s tennis Freshman of the Week and Antonio Pons was selected the GSC men’s tennis Player of the Week.
Belen Maiz was 4-0 last week to help the Lady Flames record shutout wins against Carson-Newman and Lees-McRae. It is the second straight week she has received the honor.
“Mica had another solid week and continues to improve with every match she plays,” said Lee head coach Patric Hynes. “We’ve got a big few weeks coming up, so we are looking forward to watching her progress from here.”
Pons, a junior from Los Angeles, Chile, was 3-0 in singles competition and teamed with Daniel Prata to record a 3-0 week at No. 3 doubles.
“Antonio had a great week,” said Hynes. “His singles win at Chattanooga was very impressive; he was able to fight his way back from a set down. He’s been a valuable addition to our men’s program.”
The Lady Flames and Flames are both 3-0 and open their GSC schedules on Saturday against West Florida. First serve is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the DeVos Tennis Center.
