FORT WORTH – Orlando Superlano of TCU’s men’s tennis squad and Latricia Lovings of the Horned Frogs’ women’s basketball team have been named TCU’s Athletes of the Week.
Superlano went 4-0 across singles and doubles in TCU’s wins over UT-Arlington and UTSA. The senior picked up two victories at No. 5 singles and paired with Arnau Dachs at No. 3 doubles for his other two wins. Superlano is 3-1 in singles on the season and he and Dachs are 2-1 in doubles.
Lovings posted one of the top defensive performances in TCU’s game at Texas Tech Sunday. The junior center posted a career-high nine blocks against the Lady Raiders. Lovings, who ranks third in the NCAA in blocked shots, sees her effort rank tied for fourth in TCU history in blocked shots in a game.
Superlano and the Horned Frogs return to the court Wednesday with a home match against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 5:30 p.m. at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center. Lovings and TCU women’s basketball team return to the hardwood Wednesday night at No. 21 Oklahoma for a 7 p.m. tip.
