Santa Clara, Pacific Earn WCC Women’s Tennis Weekly Honors

SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named Santa Clara junior Daniella Silva the West Coast Conference Women’s Singles Player of the Week and the Pacific duo of Viktoriya Dzyuba and Anneroos Nederstigt the Women’s Doubles Team of the Week.

In Santa Clara’s lone match of the week, Silva logged an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win over Bianca Mok of No. 34 Denver at the No. 2 singles spot. The win snapped Mok’s 11-match winning streak that dated back to January 23 for her last loss which came against top-ranked Vanderbilt. Silva won her team-best eighth dual singles match of the season, including fourth straight, for the 72nd-ranked Broncos.

The Pacific freshman duo of Dzyuba and Nederstigt went 2-0 on the week with wins over Hawaii (6-3) and GWU (6-2). They paired at the No. 1 doubles spot in both matches and move to 3-1 on the season as a doubles team.
