Brinke, Harward Earn Big West Pairs Team Of The Week Honors

April 17, 2017

Long Beach, Calif. - Sophomore Anete Brinke and freshman Hailey Harward were selected as the Big West Pairs Team of the Week after recording wins against Cal Poly and Loyola Marymount last week.

Long Beach State went 2-0 in those two matches, winning 4-1 against Cal Poly before holding off Loyola Marymount on their home courts in Manhattan Beach, 3-2, in large part from the effort of Brinke and Harward.

After winning 21-17, 21-9 in the third flight against the Mustangs, Brinke and Harward moved up a flight to compete at No. 2 against LMU. The duo then dispatched Britt Estes and Kekai Whitford 21-13, 21-11 the first win of three on the day for the Beach against Loyola Marymount.

Brinke and Harward become the third different team for the 49ers to receive Big West weekly honors this season, joining Jenelle Hudson and Megan Kruidhof and two-time winners Nele Barber and Rachel Nieto.

The Beach closes out the regular season this Thursday, facing CSU Bakersfield and No. 1 USC in a tri-dual hosted by the Trojans beginning at Noon.
