Cambridge, Mass.- For the third time in 2013, UMBC freshman Justin Carter (Randallstown, Md./National Connections Academy) has been named America East Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week.
Carter continued his hot play this spring, improving his record in both No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles. The newcomer earned his fifth straight singles win in three sets against an outstanding College of Charleston squad, capturing the three-setter, 6-3, 1-6, 6-3. Carter also helped UMBC earn a point in doubles with a 9-8 victory in the clinching No. 1 match.
