Piotr Kruk earned conference honors by posting a 3-1 record in the Flames' opening weekend.

Liberty men's tennis player Piotr Kruk was named the men's tennis Freshman of the Week by the Big South Conference earlier today. The award covers competition from Jan. 24-30, where the Flames posted a 1-1 record.

Kruk, one of the Flames' latest roster additions, posted a 3-1 overall record in his collegiate debut while competing at No. 2 and 3 singles and No. 3 doubles.

The Zarow, Poland, native picked up his two doubles wins with the help of teammate Mandeep Yadev. The duo defeated East Carolina, 9-7, and Bluefield State, 8-4. The duo's victory helped the Flames defeat Bluefield State, 6-1.

In singles, Kruk posted his victory in the No. 2 spot, defeating Bluefield State's Marcin Majchrzak in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

The Flames return to action this Friday, as they travel to Boone, N.C., for a match with Appalachian State. The contest has a 3 p.m. start time.
