TCU Athletes of the Week


Sept. 19, 2017

FORT WORTH, Texas – Alastair Gray of men’s tennis and Tijana Djuricek of women’s soccer have been named TCU’s Athletes of the Week based on their performances this past week.

Gray, a sophomore from Twickenham, England, swept the ITHF/ITA Grass Court Invitational in Newport, R.I. He won the singles and doubles title, making him undefeated in his collegiate career. Gray paired up with teammate Alex Rybakov, in which they defeated the NCAA runner-up pair from Georgia to clench the doubles title. His accomplishments earned him a wild card into the main draw of the 2018 Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open.

The Horned Frogs are back on the road next weekend, competing in either the ACU Invitational in Abilene, Texas, or the Battle in the Bay Classic in San Francisco, Calif., on Friday, Sept. 22.

Djuricek, a Serbia native and true freshman, had an outstanding week as she started and played the entirety of both winning matches against SMU and Stephen F. Austin. Against SMU, she was a key contributor on the back line, helping limit SMU to just six total shots and one goal, also registering a goal of her own. In Sunday’s win at SFA, she took all 10 corner kicks and had two assists.

TCU Women’s Soccer (6-3) will begin conference play when it hosts Kansas Friday, Sept. 22 at 6p.m. The game will be televised on FSSW.
