Rollins Athlete of the Week: Lucas Jovita, Men's Tennis
Rollins graduate student and USF transfer, Lucas Jovita was named this week's Rollins Athlete of the Week for his performance against a pair of nationally ranked teams.
Jovita, riding a four-match single winning streak, went unbeaten in both singles and doubles action. He is the No. 1 ranked player in Division II and is now 4-1 in singles and 2-3 in doubles on the season.
He first defeated Peter Coulis of 12th-ranked Flagler 6-2, 6-3, and then beat Beniot Paradis of 23rd-ranked Florida Southern 6-1, 6-3. Both victories were in the No. 1 flight.
In doubles play, Jovita teamed up with Malte Christesen to earn two victories in the No. 3 position. The duo beat Flagler's Stephan Stolz and Skyler Engle 8-6 and won 8-5 over FSC's Charles Garneau and Nathan Leavitt.
