Torres named AAC Player of the Week

IRVING, Texas – UTSA men's tennis junior Tiago Torres has been selected as the American Athletic Conference men’s tennis Player of the Week, officials from the conference office announced on Tuesday afternoon. It is his first AAC weekly honor, third career conference weekly honor and UTSA’s second AAC honoree of the season.

Torres (Lisbon, Portugal) won in both singles and doubles to lead UTSA 4-0 win against No. 62 Oregon in the Roadrunners' lone match from last week. He scored a 6-2, 6-4 win at No. 2 singles handed the Ducks’ 33rd-ranked doubles tandem of Matthew Burton/Quinn Vandecasteele a 6-1 drubbing to set up the doubles victory with partner Tomás Pinho. Torres has helped the Roadrunners to five wins in their last six matches, including a pair of ranked victories that helped propel UTSA to its entry at No. 69 in the national rankings.

UTSA is set to face off with fellow American Athletic Conference squad, No. 51 Rice, on Saturday, April 6, at the UTSA Tennis Center, ahead of the season finale and Senior Day against cross-town opponent Incarnate Word on April 13.
