CORPUS CHRISTI – Gergo Weidinger has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Weidinger earned the award after putting together a strong week against New Orleans and Oral Roberts.
Weidinger helped the Islanders to their first two Southland Conference wins of the year against New Orleans and Oral Roberts. In the first league match of the season, Weidinger won a 6-1, 6-0 final at No. 2 singles to help his team to a 5-2 win over UNO. It was the final SLC match of the year for UNO, and it kept the Islanders alive for their sixth straight Southland title.
On Easter Sunday, Weidinger did another good job of getting a quick win to help his team against ORU. He won 6-2, 6-2 at the No. 2 position in singles, and teamed up with Peter Nagy for an 8-3 final at No. 1 double to clinch the point for his team.
The Islanders are currently ranked No. 59 in the NCAA Division I national rankings administered by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, and are in first place as the only undefeated team in Southland Conference matches.
Next up for Weidinger and the men's tennis team is a non-conference matchup against Louisiana - Lafayette on April 5, at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center.
