Women’s tennis team senior Jacqueline Corba and sophomore Leah Pascarella are among the Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis All-Conference Teams, with Corba earning a spot on the first team and Pascarella nabbing a second team nod.

With the award, Corba earns her third straight first team nomination, and fourth postseason honor after she was named to the second team as a freshman. She is the fourth Colonial in program history to earn four straight all-conference awards.

This season, Corba earned a 14-11 record at No. 11 singles and a 17-4 mark in doubles, including a 12-4 record at the No. 3 doubles slot with senior Meg Tyner.

Pascarella picks up her second straight postseason honor after a second team nod last year. This season, she totaled a 16-10 overall singles record, including a 10-4 mark at the No. 2 slot. She teamed up with fellow sophomore Isabella Escobar at No. 2 doubles, picking up a 12-9 record.
