Illinois State tennis player Erik Brunskog was named Missouri Valley Conference Athlete of the Week. Over the weekend Brunskog earned two victories in the No. 1 singles spot against Bradley and Drake players. He took down both opponents 3-6, 6-4, 10-6 and 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (1) respectively.
The senior’s win over Drake’s Alen Salibasic was the only singles victory against Drake on the day. Brunskog has recently returned from an injury that has kept him out of competition during the spring season.
