GW's Corba, Pascarella Named to A-10 Women's Tennis All-Conference Teams
Corba Becomes Third-Ever Colonial to Earn Four Straight A-10 Honors
May 3, 2012
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Senior Jacqueline Corba and sophomore Leah Pascarella were named to the Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis All-Conference Teams, according to a vote of the league’s 14 head coaches. Corba was named to the conference’s First Team, while Pascarella earned a spot on the Second Team.
“We’re so proud of Jacqui and Leah for earning All-Conference honors this year,” said eighth-year head coach Dawn Buth. “Jacqui has set the bar high in receiving her fourth straight honor and will leave behind a tremendous legacy. Leah has worked hard to grow and mature as a player during her two years with our program, and we’re thrilled to congratulate her in receiving this award. Recruiting players such as Jacqui and Leah, who perform at the top conference level, are a vital component of our ongoing success.”
The All-Conference First Team nod marks the third straight for Corba and the fourth post-season honor in her career, as she was named to the Second Team following her freshman season. The Greenwich, Conn., native joins Lisa Shafran (’96) and Tracy Wei (’03) as only the third Colonial in program history to earn four straight all-conference honors.
A three-year competitor at No. 1 singles, Corba closed out her final season with the Buff and Blue with a 14-11 overall singles record and a notable 17-4 mark in doubles, including a 12-4 record at the No. 3 spot with classmate Meg Tyner. Corba and Tyner capped their senior year on a six-match doubles winning streak.
Pascarella earns her second straight Second Team accolade after landing a spot on the team following her rookie season. The Frankfort, Ill., product posted a 16-10 overall singles record this season, while owning a 10-4 mark in the No. 2 slot. Pascarella and classmate Isabella Escobar went 12-9 in second-flight doubles, in addition to winning five of their last six matches.
The Colonials closed the 2011-12 season with an overall record of 16-7 and a 3-3 mark in the A-10.
