CAN'T STOP EM': USD's primary No. 2 doubles tandem of Maja Sujica and Anna Depenau are a perfect 12-0 in dual doubles this season and 16-4 on the year. The duo is picking up right where they left off in 2011 when they went a team-best 16-4 overall in doubles play.
KEEP EM' COMIN': So. Anna Depenau has won a career-high nine singles matches in a row now. Her streak started on Feb. 17 with a 6-4, 6-2 win over South Carolina's Katarina Popova. Her previous career-long was seven in a row, which she set last year. During her current streak, Depenau is 1-0 at the No. 4 position and 8-0 at No. 3.
SPEAKING OF STREAKS: Jr. Cara Brown has put together a career-long six-match singles winning streak of her own. Her streak has carried over from the fall when she won a pair of matches in the SDSU Fall Classic II. This spring Brown is 4-0 with all of her dual matches being played at the No. 6 position.
WELCOME ABOARD: Anna Depenau (Gielenkirchen, Germany) earned her first-career ITA singles ranking by coming in at No. 97 on Mar. 13. She is currently ranked No. 102 and is tied for the team lead with a 10-3 in dual singles record, playing mostly at No. 3.
RIGHTING THE SHIP: While the team struggled out of the gates this season, the Toreros have now won five of their last six matches. Helping lead the way is Juliette Coupez (Lesquin, France), who has been a consistent fixture in the Torero lineup. The senior is tied for the team lead at 10-3 in dual singles play, playing everywhere from No. 1 to No. 3. She is a team-best 18-6 overall in singles action this season.
TOREROS PICKED THIRD IN PRESEASON POLL: The USD was voted to finish third in the 2012 West Coast Conference preseason poll. The Toreros garnered two first-place votes from WCC coaches to go along with 54 points overall. Junior Stephanie Hoffpauir was the lone Torero named to the preseason all-conference squad. Defending WCC-champion Pepperdine earned the top spot in this year's poll by taking home four first-place votes and 59 points total. The Waves were followed narrowly by Saint Mary's in second place with three first-place votes and 57 total points. Behind USD were WCC-newcomer BYU (41 pts), Santa Clara (39), and Loyola Marymount (24). Rounding out the final three were San Francisco (22), Portland (15), and Gonzaga (13).
RECAPPING 2010-2011: The Toreros are coming off their best season in years after going 19-6 overall and finishing second in the West Coast Conference. The Toreros wrapped up the season ranked 29th, their highest team ranking since 1999, and made their first NCAA appearance since 1999, defeating UNLV 4-2 in the first round before falling to UCLA 4-0 in the second round. The team's 19 wins were the most in program history as the Toreros set a handful of other team records in the process, including having the highest team winning percentage (.760), best home record (14-1), and the most consecutive dual match victories (11). Head coach Sherri Stephens took home her second WCC Coach of the Year honor, while all six regulars earned spots on the All-WCC teams. Laura Claus earned first-team honors in singles, while Juliette Coupez and Stephanie Hoffpauir were named second-team in singles and Anna Depenau, Maja Sujica, and Josymar Escalona each earned honorable mention nods. In doubles, Coupez and Hoffpauir found a spot on the first-team, while Depenau and Sujica and Claus and Escalona earned honorable mention honors.
