SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — After going 3-1 last week to help Cal Poly pick up two wins over ranked opponents, the No. 2 pair of sophomore Macy Gordon and junior Emily Sonny have been named this week's Big West Pairs Team of the Week.
Gordon and Sonny took down the No. 2 pair from No. 15 Grand Canyon, No. 20 Stanford and No. 11 Cal. The Mustangs (21-10, 5-1 BWC) beat both the Lopes and the Cardinal. The pair's only loss came against No. 2 USC.
All three wins came in straight sets and improved the duo's record to 12-3 this season, the best record by percentage on the team (min. 10 matches).
This is the first award for the pair this season and the first for Cal Poly.
The Mustangs, who finished the regular season second in the Big West, will take on Sacramento State to kick off the Big West Tournament from Zuma Beach in Malibu, Calif. on Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m.
