FORT WORTH - TCU has named women's tennis freshman Simona Parajova and baseball senior Jason Coats its Athletes of the Week for their recent distinguished achievements.
Parajova clinched the Mountain West title for TCU on Saturday, marking this the 4th time TCU has won the crown (2006, 2009, 2010). Winning the regular season championship as well, TCU swept both titles for the second time in program history (2006).
The Zvolen, Slovakia native triumphed in her three sets of singles matches against San Diego State. Her final match ended on a game-winning serve in the championship's final point, which her opponent, Emma Cioffi, returned well long. In total, Parajova won 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 to set TCU up for victory.
Coats came through with the RBI single in the 10th inning that gave TCU a 2-1 victory over the Manhattan Jaspers on Friday. With this, he recorded his 12th multi-hit game of the season and the 87th of his career with the Frogs.
In the second appearance against Manhattan on Saturday, the Plano, Texas native tied the school record with 3 doubles. Coats hit .538 this past weekend. He topped off the score with a run scoring double in the 8th inning to give the Frogs an 11-0 victory. The senior has posted his 10th multiple RBI contest of the season.
