TCU Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week


Sept. 21, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Jerry Lopez and Julia Finn have been named TCU's Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week based on impressive performances.

Lopez, a senior tennis player from Vallarta, Mexico, competed in the Bjorn Borg singles flight last week. He defeated two ranked opponents on his way to the podium. No. 99 Lopez was able to defeat No. 69 JC Aragone of Virginia (4-6,6-4,10-8) and No. 82 Alex Knight of Michigan (6-0,6-2).

Three Horned Frogs, including Lopez, walked away with titles after the first-ever Hall of Fame Grass Court Invitational.

Up next, the team will compete in San Francisco, Calif., on Thursday, Sept. 22.

In Equitation over Fences, junior Julia Finn rode to an 80-73 win over Emma Mathiasmeier. With the win, Finn not only posted her first victory of her career, but also claimed her first MOP honor.

The TCU women's equestrian team claimed all four MOP honors, and has now won five straight season openers.

The Frogs will open NCEA competition on Friday, Sept. 23 versus SMU at Turning Point Ranch.
