Boulder -- Freshman men's tennis player Bucky Mink earns Colorado athlete of the week honors after getting his third and fourth straight wins at No. 4 singles, winning both in straight sets. The two victories helped the Buffaloes defeat No. 63 Louisiana-Lafayette and nearly come up with huge upset at No. 30 Rice this past Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
University of Colorado tennis player Nuria Ormeño Ruiz was named to the All-Pac-12 second-team here Friday in the conference's postseason awards voted by the coaches. It is the second conference award she has earned in her career as she was named to the honorable mention team last year.
