CINCINNATI - Xavier's Jimmy Roebker and Adam Krull continued their feverish pace and were awarded the Atlantic 10 Men's Tennis Performer and Rookie of the Week, respectively, on Tuesday.

Roebker earned his second Atlantic 10 honor this spring after posting two victories at the No. 1 singles position and a No. 1 doubles victory for Xavier last week. The junior defeated Aidan Koross of Dayton (7-5, 6-2) and Ethan Dunbar of Richmond (6-4, 7-6 (7-3)) picking up his ninth win in his last 10 singles matches. He also paired with partner Mesa Mei for an 8-6 doubles victory in a 7-0 defeat of Dayton.

Krull extended his winning streak to 11 with a singles victory against Dayton's Robert Salcedo (6-2, 6-1) at the No. 5 singles position in his only match last week. The rookie picked up his second Atlantic 10 Rookie Performer of the Week honor this spring and has been a mainstay in the lineup for the Musketeers, who improved to 12-2 overall and 4-0 against conference opponents.

Xavier closes out its home schedule on Friday when it plays Temple. First serve is set for 7 p.m. at Eastern Hills Indoor Tennis Club.
