HOUSTON - The University of Houston Tennis team brought home a doubles title as they traveled to Natchitoches, Louisiana to compete in the Northwestern State Fall Invitational this weekend.

The duo of junior Charlotte Phillips and freshman Tina Rupert highlighted the Cougars play by taking home the doubles title in the flight two division of play.

The pair rolled to an 8-2 victory in their opening match against Anastasia Surkova and Vivien Borbely of McNeese State before defeating Louisiana-Lafayette’s Melissa Burkhartt and Juliette Clement 8-4 in the semi-finals. The girls would then show complete domination in taking home the title by defeating Karen Martinez and Maddie Mortimore from Sam Houston State 8-1 in the finals.

Rupert’s strong weekend would continue in singles play as she posted a third place finish in Flight 4 while defeating Kayla Stevenson (SHSU) 6-3, 6-1 and Taly Merker (Louisiana Tech) 6-2, 6-1.

Sophomore Maria Andrea Cardenas also put on a strong showing in singles competition by posting a third place finish of her own in the flight one division. Cardenas defeated Nelo Phiri (ULL) 6-3, 6-3 before dropping a tough match in straight sets to joanna Nalborska (Louisiana Tech) 4-6, 5-7. In the third place match Cardenas showed resiliency by overcoming a second set loss and defeating Caroline Meso (Lamar) 6-3, 4-6, 10-2.

Overall the Cougars posted a 13-5 record throughout the tournament. No member of the team lost more than one match the entire weekend.

"We have been working very hard in practice and in wanting to show something, we pressed a little too hard in some matches early on, but had a very strong finish,” assistant coach Stephanie Wooten said. “Still a lot of work to do before the season starts but our attitude and effort is great and we are improving every week."
