GW's Pascarella, Robins Named to A-10 Women's Tennis All-Conference Teams
Junior Earns Spot on First Team, Rookie Tabbed to Second Team
April 30, 2013
Pascarella was named to the conference’s First Team while Robins earned a spot on the Second Team. Competing at the Nos. 1 and 2 singles and doubles positions, respectively, the pair helped GW post an overall record of 11-8 and a conference mark of 4-1.
“We are very excited for Leah and Lana to receive All-Conference awards,” said ninth-year head coach Dawn Buth. “We are very proud of all of the hard work Leah has put in during her three years. Lana has also been a tremendous addition to our program as her work ethic and determination are second to none."
Pascarella picks up her third straight postseason honor, as she was named to the Second Team following her freshman and sophomore campaigns. She posted an overall singles record of 15-14 competing at the top spot. In first-flight doubles action, with partner Mimi Hamling, the Frankfort, Ill. native posted a record of 7-7.
At the Georgetown Fall Classic in September, Pascarella won four straight matches en route to claiming the singles championship. This spring, the junior helped the Colonials win their fourth consecutive match with a victory over UMBC, and for her efforts she was tabbed A-10 Co-Performer of the Week on Feb. 27.
In a breakout freshman season at the No. 2 position, Robins ranked second on the team with an overall singles record of 15-11, while her 11-6 dual-match record was good for the third-most wins this spring. She and senior doubles partner Dorota Lysienia went 8-8 on the spring season.
During fall competition, Robins and Hamling teamed up for an 8-2 doubles record, highlighted by three consecutive victories to take home the Georgetown Fall Classic doubles title in September. The Bellevue, Wash., native also made an impressive run in the USTA/ITA Atlantic Regional in October, as she won back-to-back qualifying victories to earn a spot in the main draw, where she won and advanced to Round 2 and ultimately fell to the tournament’s No. 1 seed.
The Colonials will lose Hamling and Lysienia to graduation and are slated to return six players to next year’s lineup.
