HOUSTON--- Freshman Tina Rupert and senior Celia Fraser continued to shine on day two of the Cougar Classic, as each improved to 4-0 on the weekend, advancing to both the singles and doubles final on Saturday.

Rupert was locked in all day, as she defeated Kansas’ Anastasija Trubica in straight sets (6-3, 6-2), to advance to tomorrow’s flight six final.

Earlier in the day she teamed up with junior Charlotte Phillips to narrowly get by Kansas’ Paulina Los and Dylan Windom, 9-8 (5), to clinch a spot in the flight two doubles final.

Fraser and Dionne Sanders also represented the Cougars well, as the tandem outlasted Stephen F. Austin’s Macarena Sedano Acosta and Julia Lorca, 8-5, to earn their spot in the flight four doubles final.

Junior Elena Kordolaimi, sophomore Maria Andrea Cardenas, and Fraser also won their respective winners’ bracket matchups to advance to their flight championships on Sunday, with Kordolaimi downing Kansas’ Maria Jose Cardona (7-6 (5), 6-4), Cardenas handling Iowa State’s Samantha Budai (6-3, 6-1), and Fraser defeating Maryland’s Nataliya Bredkina (6-1, 6-0) all in consecutive sets.

“We competed extremely well again today all the way down the lineup,” said head coach Patrick Sullivan. “I was really proud of our effort today, especially in the losses.”

“I was disappointed for Rocio (Fernandez) today, who played the best match of her young college career in front of her family who had flown in from Madrid. She had some of the worst cramping I have ever seen and was just a point away from winning the match. The good news is, last year she wouldn’t have cramped because she wouldn’t have been able to keep up and compete with a quality opponent for that long, as she did today. I’m looking forward to getting back out there tomorrow and crossing the finish line of this fall season with a great effort.”

Houston is in position to win six tournament championships heading into the final day of the Cougar Classic.
