SAN BRUNO, Calif. – BYU swept the West Coast Conference weekly honors as Keaton Cullimore was named the WCC Singles Player of the Week with Jeremy Bourgeois and Matthew Pearce as the doubles team of the week.

Cullimore, a senior, went 2-0 at No. 1 singles this weekend as the Cougars split matches against Utah State and Santa Clara. With BYU and Utah State tied 2-2, Cullimore came back 1-6, 7-5, 7-6(6) to defeat Kai Wehnelt, ranked No. 2 in the Mountain region. The Sandy, Utah, native built on the momentum to record a straight-set victory on Saturday, topping Santa Clara's Robert Seby 6-3, 6-1, and helping BYU log its second WCC win of the year. 

Playing at No. 1 doubles for the third time this season, senior Bourgeois and sophomore Pearce earned a decisive 6-2 victory over Santa Clara's Robert Seby and Jesus Barajas. The win helped the Cougars defeat the Broncos 4-2. Bourgeois and Pearce have tallied six doubles victories so far this season playing mostly at the No. 2 slot. 

This is the second honor for both Cullimore's and Bourgeois' careers and the first for Pearce. BYU has now tallied four WCC weekly honors this season.
