MEN'S AND WOMEN'S TENNIS SWEEP CAA DOUBLES TEAM OF THE WEEK HONORS

RICHMOND, Va.—When you're good, you're good.  When you're great, everyone stops to take notice.  The Colonial Athletic Association took notice this week of the strong doubles teams at VCU by naming Alex & Ana Bara the Women's CAA Doubles Team of the Week and Alexis Heugas & Antoine Baroz the Men's CAA Doubles Team of the Week.

This week marks the second straight award for Heugas & Baroz, sitting at 9-5 on the year at the Number 01 doubles position.  They are coming off a decisive 8-5 victory over Virginia Tech's Luka Somen & Corrado Degl' Incerti Tocci.

Alex & Ana Bara are currently 10-6 this spring, also at the Number 01 doubles position.  While in Tampa, Fla., they went 2-0 when facing South Florida and Marquette.  Against USF, the Bara duo took down the 54th-ranked team in the country, Ecaterina Vasenina and Loreto Alonso Martinez, 7-6.  Marquette's Gillian Hush and Olga Fisher were no match for the sisters, falling 8-5

The men are back in action Wednesday, April 11 at home against conference-foe William & Mary at 3 p.m.

The women will travel to Williamsburg to take on the Tribe Wednesday, with doubles action set to start at 3 p.m.
