SPOKANE, Wash. – A trio of Whitworth women's tennis players were named to the 2015 All-Northwest Conference Second Team, according to the official list released today by the conference office.
All three are repeat selections to the All-Northwest Conference team. Saryn Mooney, a senior from Centennial, Colorado, was previously a two-time First Team All-NWC selection. Taylor Peña, a junior from Medford, Oregon, was also a First Team All-NWC choice in 2014. Bella Hoyos, a sophomore from Bellingham, Washington, is now a Second Team honoree for two years in a row.
All three Pirates played in the top three spots on the Whitworth singles ladder this season. Hoyos went 13-5 in her 18 singles matches. She was 9-1 while playing at #3, 3-1 at #2 and 1-3 at #1 on the ladder. She was 10-2 in matches against NWC opponents. Mooney finished the season 7-8 in her 15 singles matches, 6-4 within the NWC. She went 5-6 at #3 and 2-2 at #3. Peña finished the season 3-13, playing the most matches of any Pirate at #1 on the ladder. She was 2-12 at #1 and 1-1 in the second spot.
Hoyos and Mooney were partners in doubles 10 times and they posted a record of 7-3. Hoyos finished 11-7 overall in 18 doubles matches, as did Mooney. Peña went 6-10 in her doubles matches this season, 14 of which were played with Jennifer Adams as her partner.
This trio of Pirates led Whitworth to a final record of 9-9. But the Bucs finished 8-4 within the conference and advanced to play at last weekend's NWC Tournament in Walla Walla.
