Klein Named CAC Co-Player of the Week

YORK, PA – York College men’s tennis player Travis Klein (East Stroudsburg, Pa./Pocono Mountain East) was chosen as a Capital Athletic Conference Co-Player of the Week for the first week of March. Joining Klein in this accolade is Salisbury freshman Daniel Barnas.
      Klein posted a strong 4-1 mark during the Spartans’ annual winter break trip to Hilton Head, S.C. York’s #6 singles player won all four of his matches in straight sets en route to his first CAC accolade.
      The sophomore began his season with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Methodist’s Sean Teeter before he bested Catholic’s Collin Colburn 6-1, 6-0. Following a loss to Division II Kutztown’s Arjit Goswami, a match in which Klein won the first set, he returned to the win column with two more victories. He triumphed over Grand Rapids Community College’s Jess Vandellen by a 6-4, 6-3 line and then finished the Hilton Head tour with a shutout win, 6-0, 6-0, over Mercyhurst’s Alfredo Mortenson.
      Klein will look to continue his solid play this Friday in the Spartans’ first home match of the season. The Green and White will host McDaniel in a 3:00 pm non-conference tilt.
