SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named Santa Clara freshman Robert Seby the West Coast Conference Singles Player of the Week and the Portland duo of Alex Wallace and Kent Andreasen the Doubles Team of the Week. 

Seby earns his first career WCC weekly honor after collecting three consecutive wins at the Mountain Pacific Invitational last weekend. In the first match of a doubleheader on Friday, the freshman pulled out a gutsy 7-6, 7-5 victory competing against Grand Canyon University. In the nightcap of the doubleheader, Seby came from behind to grab a 6-7, 6-3, 7-5 decision against West Coast Conference competitor Vasco Valverde from the University of San Francisco. The following morning, Seby rolled to a 6-0, 6-2 rout of his University of Hawaii opponent, his ninth win of the year.

Playing doubles together for the first time this spring, Wallace and Andreasen went 2-0 this weekend at the Golden State Invitational to earn Portland’s first doubles honor of the year. The marquee win came on Saturday when the tandem knocked off UT Arlington’s due of Daniel Armengol and Jhonathan Gonzalez who were ranked No. 61 in the nation. Playing at No. 2 doubles, the Pilot tandem won by a convincing 6-3 margin. They followed the win over UT Arlington with a tiebreak win over UC Davis’ Brett Bacharach and Eli Whittle on Sunday.
