Final Stats

HOUSTON--- The Cougars showed up in a big way, as they cruised to a 7-0 victory over UAB, Tuesday afternoon out at the John E. Hoff Tennis Courts, extending their current win streak to three straight matches.

For Houston (14-3), the win marks its seventh shutout victory of the season, while the Cougars also earned their 10th (10-1) home win of the season, which is already the most home victories for the Cougars since the 2007-08 campaign. The seven shutouts are also the most since the 2007-08 season.

UAB took the momentum early in this one, as it won the court three doubles matchup, 8-3, but not much would go right for the Blazers after that.

Despoina Vogasari and Elena Kordolaimi dug deep to rally from an early deficit, to claim the 8-5 doubles victory on court one, while Maria Cardenas and Tina Rupert followed suit, earning a convincing 8-2 win on court two to secure the doubles point for the Cougars.

With the Cougars up 1-0, Rupert looked as good as she has all season, defeating UAB's Catherine Ragon in straight sets, 6-1, 6-0 from the No. 5 position to sport Houston a 2-0 advantage.

Kordolaimi was just as dominant on court two, as she turned in a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Amy Lowther to put the Cougars on the brink of victory, up 3-0.

Then it was Vogasari who came through with the clinching point from the No. 1 spot, as she defeated Rachel Daniell, 6-2, 6-0 to earn her team-leading 19th victory of the season, and more importantly secure the win for Houston.

However, the Cougar dominance didn't stop there, as Phillips earned a 6-2, 6-1 victory on court six, while Cardenas turned in a 6-1, 6-2 win on court three to make it a 6-0 contest.

Senior Celia Fraser then finished things off with a gritty, 6-3, 5-7, 10-8 win on court four to complete the day's sweep.


 

 

The Cougars will get back to work this weekend, as they'll head east to take on Dartmouth, Friday at 4:00 p.m. CT, before completing the road swing at No. 37 Harvard, Sunday at 10:00 a.m. CT.
