Jordan Betts, a junior from Sioux City, is the Hauff Mid-America Sports/Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Men’s Tennis Player of the Week for March 27-April 2.

Betts went 2-0 at No. 4 singles and combined with Akshay Krishna, a junior from Lima, Peru, to go 2-0 at No. 3 doubles to help lead the Mustangs to victories against Grand View University and Central College. The Mustangs defeated Grand View 6-3 on March 31 in Des Moines, Iowa, and routed Central 9-0 on April 1 in Sioux City to extend their winning streak to six and raise their season’s record to 8-5.

Betts romped to a 6-0, 6-1 triumph against Diego Novoa of Grand View and a 6-2, 6-1 victory against Central’s Colin Jones to raise his season’s singles record to 9-6. Betts and Krishna won their doubles matches by margins of 8-5 against Grand View and 8-1 against Central.

The Mustangs will travel to Seward, Neb., on Saturday, April 8, for a GPAC dual against Concordia University.
