BEAUMONT, Texas -
After helping Lamar to a pair of conference wins last week, sophomore men's tennis player Mario Janjic was selected as the Aeropostale Southland Conference Men's Tennis Players of the Week.
Janjic went 2-0 in singles at No. 2 and 2-0 in doubles play at No. 3 last week, helping the Cardinals to a pair of wins over Southeastern Louisiana and Nicholls State, and improving Lamar's SLC record to 2-1. He defeated Southeastern's Ondrej Krivka 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 on Saturday and then took down Eric Fisher of Nicholls State 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 on Sunday. In doubles play Janjic paired with Andres Medina for a 9-7 win over Southeastern and an 8-6 win over Nicholls State.
This is Janjic's second player of the week selection of the season. He earned the first player of the week of the season on February 6.
The Cardinal men will be in action again on Sunday, when they host the University of Texas-Pan American at noon. It will be the first home match of the season for the Cards.
