FORT WORTH - TCU has named men's golfer Johan de Beer and women's tennis player Stefanie Tan its Athletes of the Week for their recent performances.
De Beer had a successful weekend at the Barona Collegiate Cup in Lakeside, Calif., finishing in a four-way tie for second place on the individual leaderboard. The senior from Pretoria, South Africa, finished at 11-under a total 205, his second top-five finish of the season.
His effort led No. 35 TCU to a sixth place finish. On the opening day, de Beer posted a 7-under par opening round of 65 before finishing the day at -8.
Tan, of Bishan, Singapore, led No. 39 TCU to a weekend sweep of Boise State and Air Force in Albuquerque while also claiming her sixth- and seventh-consecutive wins in No. 1 singles. Earlier in the week, Tan knocked off No. 23-ranked Mary Anne Macfarlane from Alabama.
The freshman defeated the Broncos' Sonia Klamczynska 6-1, 6-3 in singles and alongside Olivia Smith in doubles topped Kaitlyn Brown and Sonia Klamczynska, 8-2, Sunday to conclude the trip. In the Horned Frogs' match against the Falcons Saturday, Tan defeated Melissa Cecil in No. 1 singles 6-2 and 6-1.
