San Antonio – The Heartland Conference took notice of St. Mary’s court and a Rattler from overseas, as Marcin Marczewski picks up the league’s Men’s Tennis Player of the Week honor, the league announced this week.
Marczewski went 2-0 for St. Mary’s in singles play, including beating the No.1 seed from No. 20 St. Edward’s. Marczewski battled back from a 1-6 loss in the first set to take the next two 6-4, 8-10 for the win.
Now in his fourth season as a Rattler, the senior from Warsaw, Poland’s two victories set him on a two-match winning streak and puts him in a tie as the Rattler with the best record at 4-3 this season.
Marczewski’s comeback over St. Edward’s top player that helped him earn Player of the Week may also have been with the help of four years serving experience. His three-set battle against St. Edward’s put St. Mary’s on the board with the only Rattler point of the match.
