FAIRFIELD, Conn. (October 4, 2009) - Sacred Heart junior Kirill Kasyanov (Yonkers, NY) was named the Northeast Conference Men's Tennis Co-Player of the Week announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Kasyanov closed his fall season by advancing into the semifinal round of the Connecticut State Championships. The third-year Pioneer, who received an opening round by, encountered little difficulty until reaching the quarterfinals where he pulled out a victory over Fairfield's Joe Michalisin in a third-set super tiebreaker. The quarterfinal win was Kasyanov's second over a Fairfield Stag as he earned a straight-set win over cross-town rival Bob Kelly in the Round of 32, 6-2, 6-1. Kasyanov beat Yale's Ryan Berman, 7-5, 6-4, in the Round of 16, but eventually saw his run end at the hands of another Bulldog. Kasyanov fell to eventual champion Daniel Hoffman in the semis.
