LAWSON EARNS MEN'S TENNIS PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Pfeiffer University’s Philip Lawson (3-2 overall, 0-1 conf.) has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas men's tennis Player of the Week during week number four in the 2010 season. Lawson was the only Falcon to have a perfect 2-0 record at both singles and doubles this weekend in a 1-1 team record for the Falcons.

Playing in back-to-back matches at No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles, starting with Newberry, Lawson scored a 6-2, 7-5 individual win before an 8-4 victory at doubles. A day later at No. 24 nationally ranked Anderson, Lawson scored his first individual conference win in straight-sets 6-4 & 7-5, right after an 8-5 win at doubles. Pfeiffer as a team rolled Newberry 8-1 before falling to Anderson 7-2.

Weather permitting, the men’s tennis team will be back in action hosting Mount Olive on Friday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.
