DENVER – Idaho junior men’s tennis player Jose Bendeck has earned Western Athletic Conference men’s tennis player of the week honors, the league announced Monday.

Bendeck went 3-0 in both singles and doubles and the Vandals got their 20th win of the season and improved to 4-0 in WAC play during the week.

“Jose has really made some huge strides with his game this spring and he really earned this player of the week award,” Idaho coach Jeff Beaman said. “He has stepped up his singles game to a new level winning high in the line-up after Marius’ injury and he and Cristobal have continued to be a dominant doubles team.”

The Vandals beat UTA 4-0 when Bendeck won at No. 2 doubles and at No. 3 singles on Monday. Idaho fell 4-3 at Oklahoma State but Bendeck teamed up with Cristobal Ramos Salazar to beat the No. 70 doubles pairing in the nation, 8-3, and also won at No. 3 singles. Bendeck wrapped up the week with a straight-set singles win and an 8-0 doubles win over Sacramento State in Idaho’s 4-3 victory.
