The men’s tennis team garnered A-10 two awards this week. After a 2-1 record over the weekend, junior Nikita Fomin was awarded the Atlantic 10 Men’s Tennis Performer of the Week and freshman Danil Zelenkov was christened the league’s Rookie Performer of the Week.
This is Fomin’s first award as a Colonial- the junior transferred to GW before the 2012 season. It’s Zelenkov’s second award of the season, after he won the rookie title in February.
The weekend also resulted in the Colonials’ highest ever-national ranking at No.45 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association during head coach Greg Munoz’s seven-year term.
Their records are win-heavy. Fomin now has a 7-4 dual-match singles play and 2-0 on the No.1 spot. Zelenkov owns an even stronger record with a 7-3 dual match record. The duo together as No.2 doubles pair are now 6-3.
