This past Wednesday, men’s tennis player Michail Pervolarakis repeated as West Coast Conference (WCC) Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

Last year Pervolarakis became the first Pilot to ever win the award and is now one of five players in WCC history to win the award more than once as well as the first player from a school other than Pepperdine to do so.

Pervolarakis has had a dominant season so far. He took home two WCC Player of the Week honors this Spring, finished the regular season with a 12-1 dual mark and also finished 6-0 against WCC opponents. He also currently has a 24-5 overall singles record, four of those wins coming against ranked opponents. He is also one of only two ranked WCC players and is the highest ranked at 56th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings. Pervolarakis also won the ITA Northwest Regional Title, becoming the first Pilot to do so.

Pervolarakis has accomplished a significant amount in his time on The Bluff. He has been All-WCC First Team Singles for the past three years and earned honorable mention in his freshman year. He will look to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Singles Championship at the WCC Championships this week.
