– Monmouth University freshman Ramy Bekhiet
(Robbinsville, N.J./Robbinsville) has been named Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week, league officials announced on Tuesday.
As Monmouth cruised to 7-0 wins over Wagner and Post last week, Bekhiet was near flawless in both singles and doubles action. He downed Wagner’s Chris Rautenstrauch, 6-1, 6-1, and Post’s Peter Fanous, 6-0, 6-1, in No. 2 flight play. Bekhiet also claimed a pair of No. 1 doubles victories teaming up with Freddy Marcinkowski
(Sparta, N.J./Sparta). The rookie has amassed eight singles wins on the year to rank second on the Hawks and is now 8-7 in doubles play paired with Marcinkowski.
Monmouth returns to action this Thursday, April 4th, as it travels to Lawrenceville, New Jersey for a non-league tilt at Rider.Follow Monmouth Men’s Tennis on Twitter: @MUMtennisLike Monmouth Men’s Tennis on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MonmouthUniversityMensTennis
