Boca Raton, FL - Florida Atlantic senior Kevin Obletz (Delray Beach, FL/Economics) was named men's tennis Atlantic Sun Player of the Week Tuesday by the Atlantic Sun Conference office.
"Kevin is our third different player to receive player of the week recognition," said head coach David Komie. "It's nice that some of the guys are receiving individual honors despite us having a year when we are giving away too many freebies and are not as competitive as we would like to be in dual matches."
Obletz, who moved to no. 2 and is playing despite being "dinged up", captured both his single and double matches at last weekend's Atlantic Sun Conference match-up with the University of North Florida.
Obletz defeated Jose Terrera 6-4, 6-4 and teamed up with David Demers, who moved from no. 2 to no. 1, to defeat Leonardo Gomes and German Escallon 9-7.
The Owls will next play host to Boston University, 1 p.m., March 7, at Patch Reef Park.
