April 18, 2005

HOUSTON - Conference USA announced its All-Decade Tennis Team on Monday with former Houston netter Sarah Borwell making the grade to earn a spot on the 10th anniversary team that honors the top athletes in conference history.

Athletes were nominated to the team by their respective schools and the current coaches in C-USA voted to determine the makeup of the All-Decade Team.

With an all-time singles record of 130-56, Borwell distinguished herself not just as one of the best Houston tennis players, but as one of the best to ever play in C-USA.

Borwell, who played from 1999-2002, made three NCAA Tournament appearances, was named First Team All-Conference in both 2001 and 2002, was a Second Team selection in 1999, and was named the 2002 C-USA Player of the Year after going 5-0 against league competition and 12-2 overall.

In the doubles pairing, Borwell excelled with teammate Galina Seliounina. The duo recorded a 22-6 record together, earned a No. 2 ranking in the Southwest Region, a No. 25 national ranking, and played together in the 1999 NCAA Doubles Tournament

Borwell, who is still competing professionally, participated in the doubles parings of Wimbledon in 2004.
