LOS ANGLESES – Men’s tennis teammates Yannick Hanfmann and Roberto Quiroz, along with women’s diver Haley Ishimatsu were named USC Credit Union Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of Nov. 3–9, on Monday, Nov. 10.
USC CREDIT UNION MEN’S STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
The great chemistry between the two seniors had been building, as they were victorious in New York after finishing as doubles runners-up at last month’s ITA-All American Championships in Tulsa, Okla. This weekend’s championship win proved to be historic as it was the first time since 1992 that a Trojan doubles pair had conquered the ITA National Indoor Championship title.
