Oreshkina finished the year tied for second on the team with 11 dual victories and went 5-2 in Mountain West play.

Zehender, meanwhile, who also was named to the All-Mountain West Singles Team earlier in the year, finished 14th in the region. Zehender led the team with a 12-4 dual record this past spring and went 5-3 in league play.

As a team, the Cowgirls finished at No. 9 in the region.
