March 29, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- Freshman Mike Giaquinto (East Falmouth, MA/Falmouth HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's tennis team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Giaquinto has been named LEC Men's Tennis Rookie of the Week.

Giaquinto (East Falmouth, MA/Falmouth HS) made his UMD debut a successful one, defeating Mike Foley at number four singles, 6-0, 6-0, and teaming with sophomore Joe Matrisciano (Westport, MA/Westport HS) to down Jarryl McKee and Evan Fennell at number three doubles, 8-0, as the Corsairs defeated Newbury in their 2010 opener last Wednesday, 8-1.

"Mike has been working very hard to get himself near the top of the lineup, and he's looking better every week," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Tom Mendell. "Right now, he's playing number four singles for us. He may move himself up in the lineup before the end of the year."

The Corsairs are 1-0 and will return to action when they host Western New England next Thursday afternoon.
