Matt Wierzel

WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross junior tennis player Matt Wierzel (Garden City, N.Y.) has been named Patriot League Male Tennis Player of the Month for September. It is the first time in program history that a Crusader men's tennis player has been so honored by the Patriot League.

So far this season, Wierzel has accumulated a 15-1 singles record, won the individual championships at the Stonehill and Wheaton invitationals and advanced to the championship match of the Connecticut Invitational, the farthest any Holy Cross tennis player has reached in that tournament ever. Last year, he became the first in program history to earn All-Patriot League honors when he was named to the second team.

The Crusaders are 2-2 on the fall season and have two more dual meets scheduled, both at the Holy Cross Tennis Courts. They will host Merrimack on Thursday, Oct. 8 and entertain Boston University on Friday, Oct. 16. Both matches are scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m.
