ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake senior James McKie (Edinburgh, Scotland) was chosen as the MVC Men's Tennis Player of the Week.  The honor is the seventh this spring for a Bulldog, while also marking the sixth such accolade in McKie’s Drake career.

McKie led the Bulldogs to a dramatic 4-2 victory at Wichita State last Saturday (April 6) with a pair of triumphs.

In doubles, he paired with freshman Ben Lott (Newcastle, England) to register the Drake’s lone win, an 8-2 decision at the No. 2 position.

In singles, the Bulldogs fell behind 2-0 in the match before rallying with four unanswered victories to net the win.

McKie sealed the triumph recording the match-clincher over Matheus Pereira at No. 1, 6-4, 6-3.

On the season, McKie owns a 57-16 combined singles/doubles ledger.  He leads Drake in doubles wins with 27, while equaling junior Robin Goodman (Cambridge, England) for total victories with 57.

McKie and the No. 28 Bulldogs (19-2, 2-0 MVC) return to action on Saturday (April 13) in a 1:00 p.m. match at Southern Illinois.
