SAN BRUNO, Calif. --The West Coast Conference has named its WCC Women's Tennis Singles Player of the Month and WCC Doubles Team of the Month for March.

WCC WOMEN'S TENNIS PLAYER OF THE MONTH
KATIE LE, SANTA CLARA, SO

Katie Le is ranked as the No. 38 singles player by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and captured Santa Clara's lone victory against Pepperdine at the No. 1 singles position. Le downed No. 91 Khunpak Issara in two sets 6-3, 6-3. This extends Le's singles record to 13-2 this season after defeating her LMU opponent on Sunday, April 1. Le has not lost a singles match since February 11 when Elizabeth Ullathorne of No. 22 Texas Tech defeated Le in two sets. This gives Le a 10-match winning streak.

WCC WOMEN'S TENNIS DOUBLES TEAM OF THE MONTH
ANNA DEPENAU & MAJA SUJICA, SAN DIEGO

Depenau and Sujica went a perfect 7-0 in doubles play during the month of March and are 12-0 as a pair in dual doubles this spring. Playing primarily as USD's No. 2 doubles tandem, Depenau and Sujica were the only USD pair to earn a win in the Toreros' loss at then-No. 2 USC on Mar. 3. They haven't been challenged in most of their victories either, as six of their seven wins have been by a score of 8-3 or better, including an 8-0 shutout in their most recent match against Gonzaga on Mar. 25. On the year, their 16-4 overall doubles record is by far a team-best, with no other USD pair registering double-digit victories. Their current 12-match winning streak is a career-high for both Depenau and Sujica.

Also nominated: Kristina Zauere & Katie Edwards, GON; Tory Parravi & Ashley Anderson, LMU; Khunpak Issara & Lorraine Guillermo, PEP; Jenny Jullien & Jade Frampton, SMC
