HOUSTON--- The Cougars came out and made a strong statement in their conference opener, as they blanked Temple 4-0, Wednesday afternoon out at the John E. Hoff Tennis Courts

Houston (9-2, 1-0 The American) led from start to finish, as Despoina Vogasari and Elena Kordolaimi teamed up to defeat Temple's Mariana Bedon and Minami Okajima in dominating fashion, 8-2 on court one.

Moments later Celia Fraser and Rocio Martin recorded a convincing 8-5 victory on court two to clinch the doubles point for the Cougars.

With UH already up 1-0, Vogasari came through from the No. 1 spot, earning a straight set, 6-0, 6-2 victory over Alica Doms to extend the Cougar lead to 2-0.

Sophomore Rocio Martin then followed suit from the No. 5 position, blowing past Mariana Bedon in consecutive sets, 6-2, 6-0, to put the Cougars on the brink of victory.

Then freshman Tina Rupert put things away, defeating Minami Okajima, 6-1, 6-2, to clinch the match victory for the Cougars. Rupert has now represented the clinching point in three of Houston's last four wins.
