CINCINNATI – Xavier women’s tennis freshman Katie Pleiman earned her first Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honor this week and men’s tennis sophomore Patrick Bandy earned his first A-10 Player of the Week honor.

Pleiman went 2-1 in the first three matches of the 2010 season. She posted a convincing 6-2, 6-3 win over Miami’s (Ohio) Anastasia Dracheva, and a three-set victory over Bowling Green’s Christina Chiricosta. She and sister, junior Christie Pleiman, were also unbeaten in doubles, picking up an 8-6 win over Miami’s tandem and an 8-2 decision over BGSU’s number-three doubles team.

Bandy earned his first Player of the Week honor after posting a straight-set victory over Toledo’s Leo Sarria, 6-2, 6-7 (10-8) and a 2-1 record in doubles with senior Chris Herrlinger.

XU will continue the season Saturday, January 30 with the women’s team visiting Toledo while the Musketeer men will play at Cleveland State.
