HILLSBORO --- George Fox's Will Leach was named Northwest Conference Men's Tennis Student-Athlete of the Week for his performance in the Bruins' three matches from March 8-10.

Leach, a sophomore from Portland, Oregon, earns his first weekly honor from the conference office for the 2019 season. Leach played beautifully over the weekend, winning five of his six matches with his only loss coming from NCAA Division I Seattle University in three sets at the No. 1 singles spot. He helped the Bruins start NWC play at 2-0 with back-to-back 9-0 victories over Pacific Lutheran and Puget Sound.

Leach becomes the second Bruin to garner the honor after Luke Lemaitre grabbed the award the first week of the 2019 season.
