Ligon named Male Athlete of the Week

ROCHESTER – Glovers-ville High School graduate Nathaniel Ligon of the St. John Fisher College men’s tennis team has been named the College’s Male Athlete of the Week for his outstanding performances last week.

Ligon played a large role in Fisher’s recent winning-streak as the Cardinals won three consecutive matches for the first time in nearly a year.

Fisher posted two wins last week after outlasting Nazareth, 5-4, in a six-hour match before overtaking Daemen, 7-2.

The sophomore posted a record of 4-2 last week after two wins at No. 3 singles including a straight-set win against Nazareth. The Gloversville native also earned two wins at No. 2 doubles.
