WALTHAM, Mass. – Bentley senior Rodrigo Ribeiro (Sao Paulo, Brazil/Chapel School) has claimed the Northeast-10's Men's Tennis Player of the Week award, the conference announced Tuesday.
Ribeiro and the Falcons were in action just once last week, but made it count with a 9-0 victory at conference rival Le Moyne. Ribeiro bested Shane Evans in top-flight singles 6-3, 6-3, and teamed with junior Jimmy Rindo (Lowell, Mass./Lowell) to defeat Evans and Daryl Johnson in top-flight doubles 8-5.
A second team All-Conference selection a year ago, Ribeiro is off to 2-0 starts in both top-flight singles and doubles this season for the 2-0 Falcons.
Bentley's next competition is the Quinnipiac Invitational, a three-day event beginning Friday.
