With the college tennis spring season beginning to wind down, the ITA x Universal Tennis Player of the Week awards were once again given out to 8 student-athletes – four men and four women – this week to celebrate their success. All recipients had an outstanding week of play and shined for their respective teams. Their success was reflected in the change in their UTR — which was as large as a 0.32 increase.
The ITA x Universal Tennis Player of the Week award is entering its third year of being awarded. The ITA x Universal Tennis Player of the Week awards program honors male and female individuals from all five divisions (NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, and Junior College)* with weekly awards during the spring dual-match season.
