    RALEIGH, N.C. – Junior Austin Powell of the 35th-ranked NC State men’s tennis team has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, as announced by the conference office Tuesday morning.

    A native of Muscle Shoals, Ala., Powell completed action at the Wolfpack Invite with a 2-0 record in singles competition, as well as a 3-1 mark in doubles. The junior concluded the weekend with an upset of 25th-ranked Cameron Silverman of Elon, 6-2, 5-6, 6-4, on Sunday, while also defeating William & Mary’s Will Juggins in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1. For the season, Powell owns a team-leading 12-6 record, including four victories against ranked opponents.

    In doubles, Powell teamed with classmate Beck Bond to capture a 2-0 record for the weekend, while playing to a 1-1 ledger with freshman Nick Horton.
