Warren becomes the third player in program history to earn Centennial Conference Player of the Year honors, joining Zeena Abdi (1997) and Brittany Matava (2007).

In doubles, she partnered with Dwyer and the pair went 5-2 on the season. Overall, she is 12-6 in doubles this season and has 37 career doubles wins, giving her 88 total wins. A 2010 ITA All-American, she ranks third in school history in career singles wins, seventh in doubles and fifth in total wins.
