49ers sweep A-10 weekly awards

For the Charlotte 49ers' spring sports teams, it was a clean sweep.

Charlotte athletes won the Atlantic 10 Conference's weekly top performing award in every category for their performances in the last week: junior Rob Lyerly in baseball; senior Sarah Malene in softball; sophomore Moritz Bernhoerster in men’s tennis; senior Yudeshnee Pillay in women’s tennis; senior Stefan Wiedergruen in golf; sophomore Darius Law in men’s track and field; and senior Lamarra Currie in women’s track and field.

In addition, two freshmen - Andrea Rivera in women's tennis and Jake Deaton in men's track and field - won A-10 rookie of the week honors. Charlotte’s nine awards are the most earned during a single week so far in the 2008-09 sports year.
