SAN BRUNO, Calif. –Pepperdine University senior Michaela Capannolo has been named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week in the sport of women’s tennis, the league office announced Wednesday.

In her lone victory of the week, Capannolo registered a 1-0 mark against No. 25 Texas at No. 4 singles and No. 2 doubles to lead No. 30 Pepperdine to its first win over a top-25 opponent this season.

In the Waves’ 5-2 win over the Longhorns on Saturday, Capannolo and her doubles partner Christine Maddox were the only Pepperdine players to be involved in two victories. She teamed with Maddox for an 8-2 win in doubles play over Ratnika Batra and Lana Groenvynck, and then edged Danielle Wagland 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in singles action. Behind Capannolo’s performance, Pepperdine was able to squeak out the victory.

For the season, Capannolo sports a 4-1 ledger in dual season play, and recently cracked the ITA’s singles rankings at No. 118.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, this is Capannolo’s second career weekly honor, as she was recognized by the league on February 11, 2014.

Also nominated: Jana McCord, Saint Mary’s; Cristina Saenz de Buruaga Ruiz, Pacific
