Lander University men's tennis junior Eirik Groner has earned Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday.
Groner propelled the No. 9 Bearcats to an undefeated weekend at the City of Florence College Tennis Invitational at Texas, leading Lander to a 3-0 mark and the tournament title.
The Bearcats defeated Mount Olive, Newberry and Wingate to claim the championship as Groner went 3-0 in singles play and 3-0 in doubles. The Oslo, Norway, native surrendered just four games in three matches in singles, where he played at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots.
Groner and the Bearcats will be back in action at 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 9 with their home opener against Georgia Gwinnett.
