Players of the Week (August 16-22 2021)

Boys Players of the Week: Juniors Alex Konvolinka and Gabe Martinez (Bishop Chatard)

Junior Gabe Martinez has played his way onto the varsity lineup in only his second season for the Trojans Boys Tennis team. After a strong finish to his sophomore year, Gabe built on that momentum over the off-season and showed up with the goal to break into varsity on day one. Fellow Junior Alex Konvolinka, who gained valuable experience in and out of the varsity singles and doubles lineup last year, was eager to showcase what he has learned on the doubles court. Alex is a vocal leader on the team and has proved to be an invaluable part of the Trojans’ depth. Gabe and Alex have upended Lebanon, Ben Davis, and Lawrence Central en route to a 3-0 start, dropping only seven games across those three matches. Alex plays a central role to the aggressive net play good doubles teams exhibit and Gabe’s kick serve will be critical throughout the season as the pair look to contribute often to the teams’ pursuit of three points! Two Doubles, Alex Konvolinka (11) and Gabe Martinez (11)
