WACO, TEXAS (Feb. 27, 2015) -- Bernardo Pegas (SO/Bage, RS, Brazil) of Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) earned recognition as the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Men's Tennis Player of the Week for Feb. 16-22, and OLLU's Summer Almanza (JR/San Antonio, Texas) was named the RRAC Women's Tennis Player of the Week for the same dates. This is the second set of awards of the 2015 tennis season.
Pegas claimed victories in both his singles and doubles matches as the Saints defeated Schreiner University, last Friday. The sophomore from Brazil won his No. 2 singles match, 6-0, 6-1, over Dayton Hancock of Schreiner then claimed an 8-0 win in doubles with partner Tanis Martinez (JR/Carrizo Springs, Texas). OLLU is now 2-1 on the season.
Almanza moved up to the No. 1 doubles position for the first time for the Saints, but she and partner Sydney Coulter (SO/El Paso, Texas) lost a hard-fought match. She also dropped her No. 4 singles match as OLLU suffered a 9-0 defeat to Schreiner in their first team match of the season.
