Nicole Leimbach and Daniela Bercek both decided to leave the west coast and it looks like the move has paid off. Nicole, who just transferred from the University of Southern California to TCU, captured the Riviera All-American Women's Singles title after defeating Daniela Bercek in the finals. (Daniela had recently joined Duke after her stint at UCLA.) Christian and Catrina -- better known as the Thompson Twins -- brought home Notre Dame's first Riviera All-American Doubles Crown after eliminating Lucia Sainz and Kathrin Winterhalter in a tight 9-8(7) finish. The trip to the finals was the first for any Fresno State duo.
