Marshall was selected to the 2012 All-NWC First Team and she is now a four-time All-NWC honoree after also earning First Team as a freshman in 2009 and last season and Second Team in 2010.  Marshall spent the entire 2012 season as the Pirates' #1 singles player and posted a 9-10 singles record.  She went 6-6 in her 12 matches against NWC opponents.

Bosman is a Second Team selection in 2012.  She was also a Second Team honoree in 2009 and 2011.  Bosman has battled through a sore wrist this spring to post a singles record of 10-6 while playing at the #2 spot on the ladder.  She is 8-3 against NWC opponents.

Bosman and Marshall paired up as the #1 doubles team in all of the Pirates' matches and posted a 13-6 record, 8-4 in conference contests.

Jessi Steele and Claire Hemming received honorable mention consideration.  Steele, in her first season after transferring from Eastern Washington, went 18-1 in her singles matches.  She played primarily at #4, but also three at #3 and three at #5.  Hemming went 12-1 in singles play this season, mostly at #6 on the ladder.

Those four Pirates led Whitworth to a 13-6 overall record, 9-3 in the NWC.  The Bucs are the #3 seed heading into this weekend's conference tournament at Linfield.
