HOUSTON - The University of Houston women's tennis team weathered windy conditions to post a 6-1 rout of UALR on Wednesday afternoon at John E. Hoff Courts. The Cougars claimed their fourth win in the past five matches to improve to 12-5 overall this season.

"I've played UALR almost every year that I've coached and they're always a tough team," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "They played a very good doubles round, and that was a little bit more about them being tough instead of us doing anything wrong. It can be hard to keep your focus when you have a highly-ranked team looming ahead on the schedule, but I was happy to see us take care of business when we had to."

The Houston doubles tandem of Celia Fraser and Maja Kazimieruk held off a late rally to take the opening match by a score of 8-6 at the No. 3 spot and improve to 12-2 this spring, while Rocio Martin Fernandez and Charlotte Phillips outlasted UALR's duo of McShane and Luksich by a score of 8-6 at the top spot to clinch the opening point.

Houston's Elena Kordolaimi and Celia Fraser rounded out the doubles sweep with an 8-7 victory over Vorster and Amsallem at the No. 2 position to improve to 9-3 together in dual play.

Dionne Sanders quickly put Houston ahead 2-0 in the match by blanking Michaela McShane 6-0, 6-0 at the No. 6 position, and Kazimieruk reeled off her fifth-straight victory in 6-0, 6-2 fashion at the No. 4 spot to increase her team-leading record to 15-2 in dual action.

 

 

Martin Fernandez sealed Houston's 12th victory of the season at the No. 3 spot, prevailing over Viktoriya Plyuta by a score of 6-2, 6-2 to improve to 12-4 this season.

Fraser and Phillips outlasted their opponents at the No. 2 and No. 5 positions, respectively, in three sets to round out the scoring for the Cougars.

Houston returns to action this weekend when it meets No. 33 TCU at 1 p.m., on Saturday and William and Mary at 11 a.m., on Sunday. Both matches will be played at Houston Country Club located on 1 Potomac Drive.
