Veltman receives NCAC accolade

Denison sophomore Grant Veltman picked up six victories last week, helping the Big Red to three victories in Hilton Head S.C.

Veltman went 3-0 in both singles and doubles action in wins over Rhodes (8-1), Bridgewater (9-0) and Dickinson (6-3).  The sophomore posted a pair of wins at No. 3 singles and a third victory at the top flight.  In his first match at No. 1 singles, Veltman defeated Dickinson's Will Golinkin 7-5, 6-2.  He is now 8-5 in singles play and boasts a team-best four-match winning streak.

Veltman also teamed with junior Juan Guerra for a trio of wins at first doubles.  The Big Red duo is currently riding a six-match winning streak.  They also rank sixth in the Central Region with a 7-2 record.

Denison returns to action today (March 19) at Ohio Wesleyan.  Match time is scheduled for 4 p.m.
