Feb. 19, 2013
NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State men's tennis recent recruit Rolando Torrellas was named the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Tennis Athlete of the Week for his exceptional performance this past weekend.
Torrellas went 4-0 playing at No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles this past Saturday at the Redbirds' home opener in Bloomington, Ill. Torrellas also did not drop a set against Illinois-Chicago or Butler.
"I am very happy for Rolando," said head coach Cris James. "He has been coming on stronger each week as he has adjusted to college life and indoor tennis."
Torrellas assisted the Redbirds in achieving two big wins at the ISU home opener, Saturday, sweeping both Illinois-Chicago and Butler, 7-0, at the double-header event.
"I see big things in Rolando's future if he continues to work hard at it," said James.
