Top Performance #6: Nagy Shines in Three-Set Victory over Top-Ranked Opponent

The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's tennis team had quite a challenge ahead of them going into the match against No. 21 Oklahoma State in Austin at UT's Penick-Allison Tennis Center on March 31.

Following a tough loss at No. 55 TCU earlier in the week, the Islanders (12-8) were looking ahead to OSU with high hopes to build off a 4-3 victory from 2012, when current Assistant Coach Aurelien Tave clinched the match for the Islanders over the Cowboys.

Peter Nagy went in already having an outstanding season so far in singles play, compiling a 12-3 record in No. 1 singles as well as looking to extend a two-match winning streak in doubles with Guillaume Rauseo.

Nagy clinched a tough three-setter over No. 61 Jakob Sude at No. 1 singles. After dropping the first set 6-3, the junior battled his way back to win the second set 6-3, and the third, 6-2. It marked his first victory over a ranked player this season and his 13th win at No. 1 singles.  

After his impressive victory, Nagy was named the Southland Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week. It marked the third time during the season Nagy had earned the weekly honor and the sixth time in his career.

The Budapest, Hungry native then went on to be named the Southland Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Year after compiling a perfect 6-0 record on the season in Southland matches at No. 1 singles, and never lost a set throughout league play. He also finished the regular season with a team-best 18-3 dual-match record in the No. 1 position. Nagy has had a storied career with a 15-1 career record in the Southland, with his only loss in his career in conference play coming during his freshman year. Prior to winning Southland Player of the Year last season, Nagy was tabbed Southland Freshman of the Year in his first year as an Islander.
