HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Coker College men's tennis player Manel Estruga (Barcelona, Spain) was named to the Conference Carolinas All-Conference Second Team.
Playing at the No. 3 singles spot, Estruga was 14-4 overall and 8-1 in the conference during the regular season. He is a sophomore business administration and criminology double major.
"Manel is such a hard worker," said head coach Tom Simpson. "He's put in so much extra time outside of practice, and it's shown on the court, so it's great to see him rewarded for his efforts."
The Conference Carolinas All-Conference Teams were determined by vote from each head coach of participating league institutions. Awards were presented at the league banquet.
