Patrick Lewis is LEC Men's Tennis Rookie of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-A member of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's tennis team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Sophomore Patrick Lewis (Dorchester, MA/Dorchester HS) has been named LEC Men's Tennis Rookie of the Week.

Lewis went 2-0 in singles and 1-1 in doubles last week, winning both of his matches Saturday against LEC opponent Salem State after winning at number five singles and dropping a 9-7 decision at number one doubles against Roger Williams in the opening match of the season.

"For his first two matches here at UMass Dartmouth, it was a great beginning for Patrick," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Tom Mendell. "Hopefully, it will continue throughout the rest of the year."

The Corsairs are 1-1 and will return to action Thursday at Salve Regina.
