MILWAUKEE- Marquette University women's tennis players Ana Pimienta and Erin Gebes have been named to the women's tennis All-BIG EAST Conference squad, the league announced Thursday.

This is the first time Pimienta and Gebes have been selected for the honor. Pimienta was a unanimous selection in the survey of the conference's head coaches.

Ana and Erin are very deserving of this award," head coach Jody Bronson said. "The effort they put in this year was above and beyond what we asked. Individually, both had a great year and their success led our team to a fantastic season overall. I am very proud of the season we had and fully expect that next year we will take it up another notch."

Pimienta was named the BIG EAST Tennis Player of the week for the first time in her career back in January. The accolade was earned after Pimienta helped MU to a 5-2 win against over the University of Illinois-Chicago in which she delivered a 6-1, 6-1 victory at the No. 1 singles and 6-2 doubles victory at the No. 3 doubles with Vanessa Foltinger. The junior was MU's No. 1 singles player who notched an 11-13 record for the season. In her time at MU, Pimienta has accumulated 98 wins in the singles and doubles category.

Gebes concluded her season with an overall 13-10 record. The Colorado native was active in the the No. 2, 3 and 4 singles position while also playing in all three doubles spots. At the No. 2 singles, Gebes notched a 7-7 record. In doubles, Gebes played all her matches with Rocio Diaz. The duo finished with a two-match win streak, including a 9-1 record in their last ten.

The Golden Eagles finished 13-11 overall in 2013-14. In the BIG EAST Conference tournament, the squad advanced to the semifinals, but ultimately fell to Xavier in a 4-3 battle that lasted over six hours..
