Valpo Continues to Rack Up Weekly Men’s Tennis Honors
Jeffrey Schorsch won his 12th career Horizon League Player of the Week award on Tuesday.

After a flawless Horizon League weekend, the Valparaiso University men’s tennis team continued to dominate the league’s weekly awards on Tuesday.

Senior Jeffrey Schorsch (Perrysburg, Ohio / Perrysburg) claimed Player of the Week honors. He dispatched Youngstown State’s Mitch Maroscher 6-3, 6-1 on Saturday before downing Cleveland State’s Nico Mostardi 6-0, 6-3 on Sunday. The victories at No. 1 singles helped the Crusaders claim 7-0 wins in both matches to improve to 16-1 and 3-0 in Horizon League activity. The Crusaders have won 15 straight.

Schorsch is in the midst of a significant winning streak of his own, as he has strung together 13 straight triumphs to boost his season record to 19-5. Not only has Valpo’s top player gone undefeated this spring, but he hasn’t lost a single set.

Schorsch and teammate Charlie Emhardt (Carmel, Ind. / Carmel) were named the Doubles Team of the Week. The duo helped the Crusaders win the doubles point in both matches this weekend. They played together on Saturday and edged Youngstown State’s No. 1 doubles team of Maroscher and Thomas Rodrigues 6-4.

This is the 12th Player of the Week distinction of Schorsch’s collegiate career and his third of the season. The Crusaders have won five Player of the Week awards and five Doubles Team of the Week Awards this year.

Valpo will step outside of league play this weekend for a trip to Murfeesboro, Tenn. The Crusaders battle UAB on Friday at 10 a.m. to get the trip started, then visit Middle Tennessee State on Saturday and take on South Alabama on Sunday.
