SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The West Coast Conference announced it's Women's Tennis All-Tournament selections on Saturday, April 26 after the end of the WCC Championships, naming Santa Clara's Chelby Cooke and Katie Le as the No. 1 doubles All-Tournament Team.

They led the fourth-seeded Bronco squad to wins over Portland, 4-0 in the first round and San Diego, 4-3, in the quarterfinals.
