Barbu, Gorin named TCU student-athletes of the week

Jan. 31, 2006

FORT WORTH, Texas - Women's rifle standount Tanya Gorin and men's tennis player Radu Barbu have been named the TCU Student Athletes of the Week, the athletics department announced on Tuesday.

Gorin continues to rewrite the TCU history books with her shooting on the range, breaking the 60-shot air rifle record for the third time this season. With a score of 586, Gorin demolished her own 60-shot air rifle record of 581, which she set in November against Arkansas-Fort Smith.

Barbu, a junior from Pitesti, Romania, opened the 2006 tennis season with a pair of wins last Saturday when the Frogs hosted No. 36 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The junior paired with sophomore Cosmin Cotet in doubles play to knock off Sharon Henselijn and Jan Cingel (8-1). Barbu then defeated Cingel (6-1, 6-2) in singles play to complete his day.

Women's rifle returns on Friday, Feb. 3, when it welcomes Air Force to the Metroplex. The men's tennis team returns to action on Wednesday, Feb. 8, when it hosts UT-Arlington at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.
