Feb. 28, 2012
Duquesne University freshman tennis player Rich Robbie (Harwich Port, Mass./Thayer Academy) has been named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week for the week ending Feb. 26. Robbie is the fourth different Duke to win an Atlantic 10 honor in the first five weeks of the season.
Robbie went 5-1 on the week, posting a trio of wins at No. 3 singles, along with two victories at No. 3 doubles. He currently leads the Dukes in singles victories with 16 and combined wins with 30. His singles victory versus St. Francis (PA) was the match-clincher and his doubles wins versus Youngstown State and St. Francis clinched the doubles point as well.
The Red and Blue head to Orlando, Fla. where they will train during spring break. The Dukes are scheduled to face Webber International on Feb. 28 at 5:00 pm and Mount St. Mary's on March 1 at 3:00 pm.
