Women's Tennis Year In Review

July 27, 2001

STANFORD was perfect in 2001, posting a 25-0 mark and winning both the NCAA and Pac-10 team titles. In NCAA singles action, Stanford's Laura Granville defeated teammate Lauren Kalvaria to win her second consecutive individual title. Granville became the first player since Florida's Lisa Raymond in 1992 and 1993 ti win back-to-back singles titles. The duel between the teammates also marked just the third time teammates have faced each other in the history of the NCAA singles championship.

ARIZONA STATE's Adria Engel defeated Raquel Kops-Jones of CALIFORNIA 7-5, 6-2 to win the Pac-10 women's singles title at 'The Ojai.' Mariko Fritz-Krockow and Sara Walker of UCLA beat teammates Lauren Fisher and Peyta Marinova 3-6, 6-1, 6-0 to capture the doubles title.

Granville was named Pac-10 Tennis Player of the Year, while teammates Kalvaria and Lauren Barnikow were named Doubles Team of the Year. Kops-Jones took home Freshman of the Year honors.

Washington's Patty McCain was selected as Pac-10 Coach of the Year after leading the Huskies to an 18-7 overall record and tie for second place in the Pac-10 standings. The No. 14 Huskies enjoyed their highest-ranking ever. This is McCain's first Coach of the Year honor.
