Jullien of Saint Mary's repeats as WCC Player of Year

   Jenny Jullien of Saint Mary's was named the West Coast Conference Women's Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, the league announced this week.
   Jullien, a senior from France, finished the regular season with a 16-2 record at No. 1 singles (7-1 in WCC play).
   Ranked ninth nationally, Jullien became the first competitor to repeat as the WCC Player of the Year since USF's Jenni Heinser earned the honor three times in a row from 2008 to 2010.
   Also named to the All-WCC women's first team in singles were Saint Mary's sophomore Jamie Pawid of Castro Valley, USF sophomore Andrea Ka of France and Santa Clara senior Katie Le of Milpitas. Thyra Taune of Sweden became the second straight USF player to earn WCC Freshman of the Year honors, following Ka.
   On the men's side, Santa Clara senior John Lamble of Saratoga and USF junior Bernardo Saraiva of Portugal were named to the All-WCC first team in singles. Pacific's Miguel Diaz of Castro Valley was chosen as the Freshman of the Year.
   The West Coast Conference men's and women's championships are scheduled for Wednesday through Saturday in San Diego.
