Stockton, Calif. - Tiger freshman David Gonzalez (Guayaquil, Ecuador) has earned the February Pacific Competitor of the Month award.
Gonzalez was 7-0 in singles during February for the men's tennis team, playing at the No. 3 and No. 4 positions.
In Doubles, his record was 5-2, partnering mostly with Moritz Starke at the No. 1 position.
"David is what we take pride in at Pacific: he never gives up," said head coach Guido Baumann. "He is a fierce competitor and will always go all-out. In several of his matches this season, he was down early but never lost his composure, knowing that his game will come around. And, seven times, it did!"
The award is given each month to a Pacific individual to recognize unusual or remarkable competitive effort.
