Rico earns second Heartland “Player of the Week” honor
McMurry University junior men’s tennis player Casjen Rico has been selected as the Heartland Conference “Player of the Week,” it was announced by the league office.
It marks the second time this season that Rico has won the honor, also picking up the accolade on March 24.
Rico won all of his matches last week, including two versus nationally ranked #17 Cameron University, playing No. 5 singles and No. 1 doubles (with partner Chris Breaux). He also won at No. 3 singles and No. 1 doubles versus Southwestern Christian University.
Rico improved his season record to a team-best 15-3 in singles and 10-8 in doubles and is currently riding a 7-match win streak in singles. His 15 victories is also three more than any of the other Heartland Conference players have amassed.
Rico and Breaux are also the No. 2-ranked team in the NCAA Division II South Central Region.
