SMITHFIELD, R.I. – Bryant University men's tennis player Vidith Huot (Providence, R.I.) was named the Northeast Conference Player of the Month for the month of September.

The junior continued his stellar play over the weekend at the UConn Invitational, advancing to his individual flight finals in the singles and doubles divisions.

In singles action, Huot defeated Fairfield's R.J. Mirabile, 6-3, 6-2, and UConn's Andrew Ginzberg, 2-6, 6-4, 10-7, before falling in the finals to Sacred Heart's Jeremy Shuskus, 1-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-10.

In doubles action, Huot and partner Ernesto Arguello (Managua, Nicaragua) defeated pairs from Hartford and Merrimack in the first two rounds, advancing to the finals where they fell to UConn's Jacob Spreyer and Ryan Carr.
