Junior Jordan Rodgers, Biglerville, and freshman Mike Saccoman, of Kingston, New York, have been named North Atlantic Conference* and North Eastern Athletic Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for the period ending Oct. 12.

In men’s tennis, Rodgers went a perfect 2-0 in the first flight for both doubles and singles, dropping only three games in all of his matches.  His efforts helped the Wildcats defeat both Lycoming College and Susquehanna University. In golf, Saccoman shot a season-best 77 to take third individually at the Susquehanna University Fall Invitational.  His efforts, helped the team to a third-place finish.

Rodgers (majoring in residential construction technology and management: building construction technology concentration) and the Wildcat tennis team have completed the fall portion of their season and will get back into action next spring.  Saccoman (enrolled in automotive technology management: automotive technology concentration) and Wildcat golf just competed at the USCAA Championships, which concludes the team’s fall season.

*Beginning with the 2010 season, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has partnered with the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) in the sport of men’s and women’s tennis. The NEAC will compete as associate members of the NAC in men’s tennis, while the NAC will compete as associate members of the NEAC in women’s tennis.
