SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Sophomore UNCG men's tennis player James Dougherty (Melbourne, Australia) was named SoCon men's tennis Player of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

Dougherty was 2-0 in singles play and went 2-0 in doubles competition as the Spartans earned sweeps over UNC Asheville and Gardner-Webb.

Competing at the No. 2 singles position, Dougherty posted straight-set wins over UNCA’s Tom Panoulas-Orestis (6-3, 7-5) and Gardner-Webb’s Nikita Zverkov (6-4, 6-3).

Paired with Randy Phillips at No. 1 doubles, the Spartans’ top duo topped UNCA’s Brett Landau and Alex Crocker, 8-4. They then knocked off Gardner-Webb’s Zverkov and Ernest Alberch, 8-5.

Dougherty is now 4-2 in singles play this spring and owns a 5-1 mark at No. 1 doubles with Phillips.

The Spartans return to the court Wednesday when UNCG visits Campbell at 1 p.m. in Buies Creek, N.C.
