BABSON PARK, Mass. -- After going undefeated at the second doubles position this week, Babson College first-years Victor Vu (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Roberto Perez (Pozuelo de Alarcon, Spain) have been honored as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Men's Tennis Doubles Team of the Week.
Perez and Vu posted a perfect 3-0 record at the number two spot this week, helping Babson win two of its three contests. They teamed up for an 8-0 win over Suffolk's second duo of Calixto Romero and Dashuan Zhu on Wednesday, and then trumped Clark's number two tandem of Daniel Stein and Zach Goodstein, 8-3, on Saturday. The first-year pairing finished the week by defeating Alex Kim and Justin Hendrix of 17th-ranked Amherst, 8-6, on Sunday, to improve to 6-3 on the season.
Babson will enter this year's NEWMAC Tournament as the second seed, and will face third-seeded Clark in the semifinal round at top-seeded MIT on Saturday, April 27, at noon. The winner will then advance to Sunday's championship match at 1 p.m., also at MIT.
