Without further ado, here are the nominees for HERO of The Week!
Federico Garnier, Limestone
In a dual match with the second-ranked program in the nation, Garnier was able to claim the only win for his side. Leading off singles play, the Saints star was able to come back and win in three sets.
Thomas Grinberg, Saint Leo
It seems every week that Grinberg adds a new ranked player to his list of defeats, this time taking down the fifth-ranked player in D2. The top player in singles play has not lost a match since October of 2017.
Gabriel Hocevar, Lynn
In Lynn's match with Saint Leo, Hocevar was the only winner for his team. He was able to claim a hard-fought straight set victory as the fourth player in the singles rotation.
Juan Segura, Maryville
Segura was able to claim one of a few wins for the Marvyille program in a close team loss to Drury. Going second in singles play, Segura fought until the end in a three-set dub.
Kiranpal Pannu, Columbus State
Ranked as the second player in D2, Pannu claimed yet another victory to add to his season total. Since the turn into 2018, the Cougar star has lost just three times.
Jaime Bueno, Saint Leo
Another Lions standout got the job done against Keifer, winning pretty handedly in straight sets. Ranked as the 37th player in D2, Bueno has not dropped a single match all season.
Sherif Abohabaga, Southwest Baptist
Ranked as the third player in D2 singles play, this Bearcat standout was nearly upset before coming back to win a decisive third set. Like fellow superstar Grinberg, Abohabaga has not lost since last October.
