FOREST, Va. – Guilford College’s Mason Robb (Greensboro, N.C./Keystone National (Pa.)) earned the Old Dominion Athletic Conference’s (ODAC) Men’s Tennis Player of the Week Award Monday. Robb, a freshman, is the Quakers’ first men’s tennis student-athlete so honored this season.
Robb enjoyed a perfect 4-0 week at second singles and second doubles in Guilford’s league wins over visiting Hampden-Sydney College and Emory & Henry College. In the Quakers’ 5-4 triumph over Hampden-Sydney, Robb teamed with Elijah Gregory for an 8-4 win over the Tigers Will Driskill and Clark Cummings for Guilford’s lone doubles’ victory in the match. Robb later tamed Driskill in singles play, 6-2, 6-1. The following day, Robb and Gregory stopped Emory & Henry’s Liam Davidson and Cooper Garrett, 8-2. He later blanked Davidson, 6-0, 6-0, for his third double-bagel win of the season.
Robb, who attended Page High School in Greensboro, sports a 9-6 singles mark this season and is 8-2 in 10 dual matches. He, like the Quakers, is a perfect 5-0 in league play. Robb and Gregory have been Guilford’s top doubles tandem and boast an 11-5 overall mark, 8-2 in dual contests, and also 5-0 versus conference rivals.
Coach Dave McCain’s Quakers (8-3, 5-0 ODAC) have won six of their last seven matches. Guilford hosts league-rival Roanoke College Tuesday (4/17) at 3:00 p.m. and welcomes league-leading Washington and Lee University Friday (4/20) in a match rescheduled from March.
