FORT WORTH – Alex Young of TCU’s baseball team and Monika Sirilova of the Horned Frogs women’s tennis team were named the TCU Athletes of the Week.
Young was masterful in relief of Andrew Mitchell who lasted just 1/3 of an inning of Sunday’s game at West Virginia. The freshman came on in the first with the Frogs trailing 4-1. He tossed 6 2/3 innings, allowing a run on three hits. He walked one and struck out five.
Sirilova earned three wins in four matches of TCU’s NCAA Tennis Championships matchups this past weekend. The Slovakian posted straight-set victories at No. 5 singles of North Texas’ Ilona Serchenko (6-2, 6-0) and Texas A&M’s Wen Sun (6-4, 6-0). She also helped TCU earn the doubles point against UNT, teaming with Stefanie Tan to earn an 8-3 win at No. 3 doubles.
The TCU baseball team is in action tonight against UT-Arlington. First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m.
