Jimmie Henson named ASC Men's Tennis player of the week

LONGVIEW, April 12, 2017--Jimmie Henson (Sunnyvale, TX/ Sunnyvale HS) was named the East Division Men's Tennis Player of the Week by the American Southwest Conference on Wednesday.

Henson played determined tennis last weekend with three total wins for the YellowJackets. The freshman earned a win at No.2 doubles with partner Robby Bundy as they defeated Belhaven to give LeTourneau valuable points in a close match. Henson also won three-set No.2 singles matches against East Texas Baptist (6-3, 6-7, 6-2) and Belhaven (4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (13-11))

This is the second player of the week nod for the YellowJackets this season as senior Ty Grove earned the nomination on February 21.

LeTourneau will be back on the court on Friday morning for an ASC dual match with No. 17-ranked UT Tyler. First serve is set for 9 a.m. on Friday at the Davis Tennis Courts.
