Bradley, Walker Named Singles and Doubles All-Americans

May 31, 2002

Los Angeles - Four UCLA women's tennis players earned All-America honors when the final Omni Hotels Collegiate Rankings were released Friday. In addition, the Bruins ended the season ranked No. 4 in the national team rankings.

Bruin junior Sara Walker (El Paso, Texas) earned All-America honors in both singles and doubles. She achieved the honor in singles for finishing the season ranked No. 10 in the country. In doubles, Walker and teammate Petya Marinova (Mississauga, Canada) were All-Americans for being a top-eight seed in the NCAA Doubles Championships and for finishing the season ranked No. 2 in the nation. It is Walker's third All-America honor.

Like Walker, Bruin freshman Megan Bradley (Columbia, Mo.) was also an All-American in both singles and doubles. She ended 2002 as Bruins' highest ranked singles player at No. 5 in the nation. She also teamed with sophomore Lauren Fisher (Pittsburgh, Pa.), advancing all the way to the finals at the NCAA Doubles Championships.

Both Fisher and Marinova are now two-time All-Americans after being named to the team in 2001 as well.
