UC SANTA BARBARA’S PALENCIA, DAVIS SWEEP TOP BIG WEST HONORS
UC Santa Barbara took home the top two individual men’s tennis honors today as Carlos Palencia and Marty Davis were named Big West Player and Coach of the Year, respectively.

Palencia is the third UC Santa Barbara player to garner Big West Player of the Year honors in the last four years. The junior, a native of Cordoba, Ver Mexico, posted a 16-4 record at No. 1 singles this season and helped the Gauchos win their second Big West Championship last weekend in Ojai, Calif. Palencia toppled Idaho’s Eddie Brisbois, a fellow member of the All-Big West First team, in UCSB’s semifinal victory. He also amassed a 15-6 record at No. 1 doubles with partner Marcin Kosakowski. Palencia is ranked No. 60 in the nation in the Omni Hotels Collegiate Tennis poll.

Davis, who is in his third season at the UC Santa Barbara helm, led the Gauchos to their first Big West title since 1998. He becomes the third individual from UCSB to win Big West Coach of the Year honors. He has guided the Gauchos to a 14-9 record heading into the NCAA Tournament, thanks to gaining the conference’s automatic bid as a result of winning the Big West title.

Pacific’s Dietrich Haug attained All-Big West First Team honors for the third straight season.
