San Bruno, Calif. - Loyola Marymount freshman Nico Terrien has been tabbed as the West Coast Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Month for April, the WCC announced today. Terrien's performance helped the Lions equal LMU men's tennis' highest WCC finish in program history, finishing third at the conference championships on April 25.
Terrien, the WCC Freshman of the Year, finished the month of April with a perfect 7-0 mark at the No. 2 singles slot, including wins over Saint Mary's, UC Riverside, Idaho, Portland, San Francisco, and Santa Clara.
The Nantes, France native finished the season 27-8 overall, and 17-0 at No. 2 singles en route to earning first-team All-WCC honors at this season's WCC Championships.
