Martinez named to All-Freshman Team
Eduardo Martinez was named to the 2012 Atlantic Sun All-Freshman Team. He tied for the team lead with eight individual match wins and was also tops with four conference doubles match wins.
Martinez made an immediate impact for the JU men’s tennis team this season since coming to Jacksonville all the way from his hometown of Mexico City, Mexico. He played the majority of his matches as Jacksonville’s number four player and was able to notch five individual wins at that position.
His success was not limited to the singles court as Martinez and fellow freshman Eimon Heywood teamed up to lead JU with nine doubles match victories. The duo went 4-4 in conference play including winning 8-5 over Kennesaw State in the final match of the year.
