CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. –Virginia men’s tennis junior Carl Soderlund (Stockholm, Sweden) has been named the ACC Men’s Tennis Co-Singles Player of the Week in honors announced Tuesday (April 9) by the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Söderlund picked up a pair of wins over ranked opponents last week, including a dominating 6-0, 6-0 win on Sunday over Miami’s Adria Soriano Barrera, who is currently ranked No. 36. He also downed No. 39 Lucas Poullain of Florida State on Friday. Söderlund also went 2-0 in doubles, helping UVA clinch the doubles points in a pair of road wins against ranked opponents.
