“Henrique is the backbone of this team,” head coach Malik Tabet. “He’s very deserving and has been all season. He’s very consistent and no matter the position he played, he’s made his contribution.”

Norbiato won his fifth-straight match since moving to No. 1 singles, Friday, against Jacksonville State. His success at the position has not come by accident, as he won each match in straight sets. On the doubles side, Norbiato teamed with fellow sophomore Sean Bailey for a win at No. 1 doubles, helping the Govs secure the second seed in the upcoming OVC Championship.

OVC Tournament play begins, Friday, at the Larry J. Heflin Tennis Center, in Paducah, KY. The Govs will face the winner of Tennessee Tech and Murray State, 2:00pm, Saturday.
