WCC Weekly Honors

The West Coast Conference has named Loyola Marymount freshman Veronica Miroshnichenko the West Coast Conference Women’s Singles Player of the Week and the Lions duo of Miroshnichenko and Eva Marie Voracek the Women’s Doubles Team of the Week.

Miroshnichenko went 2-0 against opponents from Seton Hall and UC Santa Barbara at No. 1 singles to earn her first career singles honor. The freshman from Russia started the week with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Seton Hall’s Luize Strike before knocking off UCSB’s Palina Dubavets, an NCAA Tournament participant, 7-6 (4), 6-3 to help LMU to a slim 4-3 win over the Gauchos. Miroshnichenko was first to finish in that tight match against UCSB.

Miroshnichenko also combined with regular doubles teammate Eva Marie Voracek to go 2-0 while playing at No. 1 doubles for LMU, helping guide the Lions to the two wins. The 33rd-ranked team in the nation posted a 6-0 victory over Seton Hall’s Taal and Strike before posting the first half of a doubles point win over UCSB on Sunday. There, Miroshnichenko/Voracek teamed to defeat 39th-ranked Palina Dubavets and Natalie da Silveria, 7-6 (6). The doubles honor is the second in three weeks for the freshmen pair.
