Alex Grubbs Named MW Player of the Week

April 25, 2012

Air Force sophomore Alex Grubbs has been selected as the Mountain West Men's Tennis Player of the Week, announced today by the conference office.

Grubbs, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, went a combined 2-0 last week as Air Force concluded its regular-season slate with a 7-0 victory over Colorado College at the Academy. Positioned at the No. 2 singles position, Grubbs downed Will Lindsay in straight sets (6-0, 6-0), after teaming with Michael Tope to knock off Robert Kasemodel and Zach White, 8-5, at the No. 3 doubles spot. Grubbs leads the Falcons with 29 combined dual match wins this season, the most by an Air Force student-athlete since Shannon Buck posted 32 victories in 2006.

The Falcons play New Mexico in the quarterfinals of the MW Championships on Friday in San Diego, Calif.
