WNMU named the Men’s and Women’s Athletes of the week; Jean Benoit Belin for the Mustangs and Kaitlynn Barnes for the Lady Stangs.

J.B., a senior from France, plays tennis for the Mustangs. He went undefeated in singles action last weekend as the Mustangs played in the Grand Canyon University Invitational. The tourney features some of the best collegiate teams in the west and Belin’s 4-0 performance in singles and 1-0 performance in doubles helped the Stangs to finish the weekend 2-2 at the tournament. WNMU defeated Scottsdale CC 9-0 and nationally ranked Sonoma State 5-4 but lost to host Grand Canyon 6-3 and Hawaii Hilo 5-4. For his efforts Belin was also named the RMAC Men’s tennis Player of the Week.

Kaitlynn Barnes, a senior catcher for the Lady Stangs softball team, helped to power the Lady Stangs to a 4-1 record in the Desert Stinger Softball Tournament in Las Vegas NV. The tournament features 28 teams from around the country including several of the top ranked teams in the nation. Barnes led the team with 3 home runs and 7 RBI over the 5 games. Kaitlynn posted a .533 batting average in 15 plate appearances; she also drew one walk and did not strike out. Barnes was also solid defensively as she recorded 14 putouts, an assist and just one error. In the stretch Barnes was perfect from the plate in two games; 3-3 with a HR and 2 RBI against Minnesota Duluth and was 2-2 against Upper Iowa with 2 more HRs, 4 RBI and 2 runs scored.
