Solymosi nets Player of the Week honors

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College senior Nandor Solymosi (Drebecen, Hungary) has been named the Conference Carolinas men's tennis Player of the Week after defeating a pair of top-flight NCAA Division I foes, announced league officials Wednesday.

Solymosi opened the week with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Gardner Webb University's Julien Belair, then defeated Davidson's Joe Schafer on Saturday in a three-set thriller (6-4, 2-6, 11-9). The No. 23-ranked senior currently holds a 2-1 record in singles play this season, all against Division I opponents.

Lees-McRae returns to action on Saturday when the Bobcats travel to Elon, N.C. to take on NCAA Division I Elon University in a 10 a.m. matchup.
