Sanchez Earns Mountain West Weekly Honor

Feb. 22, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU men’s tennis player Daniel Sanchez has been named Mountain West Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, the league announced Wednesday. The senior teamed up with TCU women’s tennis player Gaby Mastromarino to sweep the weekly accolades.

Sanchez, a product of Monterrey, Mexico, went 2-0 Saturday, helping 44th-ranked TCU down Wichita State, 6-1. The senior teamed with sophomore Max Stevens at the second doubles spot, defeating the WSU tandem of Kester Black and Nestor Perez, 8-6, to help the Horned Frogs clinch the doubles point. He returned to the court later in the match, notching a 7-6 (4), 6-3 straight-set win over Tomislav Gregurovic at the No. 3 singles position.

The weekly honor is the first for Sanchez in his career and the second for TCU this season. Freshman Nick Chappell claimed the honor on Feb. 15 for his performances against Texas Tech and Santa Clara.

The Frogs will continue the current road swing Friday at Texas A&M (Feb. 24). The next home match for TCU will be March 2 against Arizona.
