CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Men’s tennis senior co-captain Andy Nguyen has been named the COOP Athlete of the Week for April 8.
Nguyen went 4-0 last week, earning a pair of singles and doubles victories to help Harvard begin Ivy League play 2-0. In a contest against No. 40 Columbia, Nguyen paired with Nicky Hu to top Dragos Ignat and Bert Vancura, 8-4, at No. 2 and secure the doubles point for Harvard. Then, with the match tied at three, the Phoenix, Ariz., native rallied past Max Schnur, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, to give the Crimson the victory.
On Sunday, he paired with Hu again for another 8-4 victory, this time over Jason Luu and Quoc-Daniel Nguyen at No. 2. Nguyen then breezed to a 6-0, 6-1 win over Cornell’s Nguyen en route to a 6-1 team triumph against the Big Red.
Harvard’s senior co-captain paces the squad with a 20-6 mark this year, including a 13-2 record in singles play.
The Crimson travels to Princeton and Penn this weekend before returning home April 19 to face off with Brown in the final home match of the season.
