April 17, 2006

Senior Nick Brotman was named the Golden1/ucsbgauchos.com Student-Athlete of the Week Monday after winning both his matches this past weekend, including an upset bid over No. 63 Jakub Cech of Fresno State.

On Saturday, the Gauchos' No. 1 ousted Victor Lamm of UC Irvine in straight sets 6-3, 6-2, then paired with Anders Dalskov in No. 1 doubles to defeat the Anteaters' Mustafa Ulakan and Trevor Dobson 8-6. Brotman continued to roll Sunday, beating Cech 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in No. 1 singles after winning again with Dalskov at No. 1 doubles.

The Toronto native has won eight of his past nine matches heading into the final week of the season. Brotman and the Gauchos take to the courts next this Friday when they host UC Santa Cruz at the RecCen Courts.
