Bot Named Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week
The second year player clinched the season's first conference win after a 7-6, 7-6 victory on court 4.
MORAGA, Calif. — Sophomore tennis player Matis Bot has been named Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of April 2-8 after a clutch performance that gave Saint Mary’s men’s tennis the conference victory over Pacific.
Tied 3-3, it all came down to Bot’s singles match on court 4 that decided the outcome of the day for the Gaels and Tigers. After taking the first set in a tiebreak, 7-6, the sophomore went into another tiebreaker.
Facing several match points, Bot rose to the occasion and captured the momentum to give him the match point. The native of Paris, France used a big backhand down the line to clinch the match and the season’s first conference win.
Saint Mary’s continues the league schedule on the road this week at Portland and Gonzaga. The Gaels will face the Pilots on Friday, April 13 at 11 a.m. PDT. SMC will then head to Spokane, Wash. for a match versus the Zags on Saturday, April 14 at 12 p.m. Live scores and video links can be found on the men’s tennis schedule page.
