YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its first tennis awards of the 2016 spring season on Wednesday, and Salisbury University men's tennis senior Eric Spangler earned the honor as co-Player of the Week.
Spangler has started the season with a 7-1 overall record, going 4-0 at No. 1 singles and 3-1 at No. 1 doubles.
In singles action, Spangler has won all four of his singles matches in straight sets, surrendering just 13 games along the way. This past weekend, he defeated Johns Hopkins' Jeremy Dubin, who is ranked No. 14 in the Atlantic South Region.
In the three doubles wins, Spangler and senior teammate Shanon Gunther allowed just 11 games to their opponents, including 8-1 and 8-2 victories.
Spangler and the Sea Gulls begin CAC play this Friday, taking on Southern Virginia University in a neutral-site match being played at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. That contest is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.
