CAA Recognizes Kosta Blank, Chris Cooprider


WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW’s 15th-ranked doubles team of Kosta Blank and Chris Cooprider has been recognized as the Colonial Athletic Association’s Doubles Team-of-the-Week.

The senior tandem, playing at the top of the doubles lineup, went 2-0 last week as the Seahawks breezed past Coastal Carolina and Davidson by identical 7-0 scores to improve to 8-3 this spring.

The Seahawks return to action Saturday with a Noon match against No. 20 Clemson at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center on the Tiger campus.
