Devon Peightal Named A-10 Rookie of the Week
March 17, 2003
Duquesne's Devon Peightal (Fairview, PA / Cathedral Prep) was named the Atlantic 10 Conference's Men's Tennis Rookie of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Peightal picked up a fourth singles win in a dual match against St. Bonaventure on Saturday. This victory was one of the Dukes' two wins in a 5-2 loss to the Bonnies.
This is the second weekly honor for the Erie, PA area native, who received this same award last fall (Sept. 30, 2002) as he helped the Dukes to a 5-2 win over Bucknell. Peightal's 9-8 singles mark is the second best for the Dukes so far this season.
Today's honors open the Spring Atlantic 10 awards season. In addition to Peightal, the league also announced that Leia Zingone and Kelly Mulford were named the Women's Tennis Co-Performer and Women's Lacrosse Rookie of the Week, respectively.
The Red and Blue (5-6, 0-1) head to Philadelphia this weekend for a trio of matches against conference foes Temple and St. Joseph's on Friday and Saturday, respectively, and a non-conference matchup with Villanova on Sunday.
