Day One in the Books at ITA Regional

Oct. 23, 2008

FORT WORTH, Texas - In its second tournament of the fall season, the University of Houston tennis team kicked off play at the ITA Regional Thursday in Fort Worth, Texas.

Freshman Alix Young, senior Vicky Simpson, junior Neila Starratt and sophomore Joanna Kacprzyk each split a pair of singles matches on the day, with Kacprzyk narrowly missing a perfect 2-0 performance, falling in three sets to Texas' Maya Zien-El-Abdin, 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 after posting a straight sets victory earlier in the day.

The Cougars did not fare as well in the doubles portion of the day, going a combined 0-3. The tandem of Starratt/Young fell 8-0 in their match to Gutierrez/Guterrez , while UH's Lucy Forward, paired with Simpson, dropped a tiebreaker proset, 9-7, to the team of Paraschiv/Ranganathan from North Texas.

UH's third of Jordan McCombs and Laura Ring were also downed by Texas A&M's duo of Olivier/Santacroce.

The ITA Regional continues this weekend, before the Cougars will return home to host the Cougar Fall Classic, Nov. 8-9.
