HOUSTON--- Junior Elena Kordolaimi and sophomore Maria Andrea Cardenas put together dominating performances Sunday afternoon, as each clinched singles championships on the final day of the Cougar Classic.

Kordolaimi defeated Arkansas' Shannon Hudson in consecutive sets (6-3, 6-3) to claim the flight two singles title, while Cardenas also won in straight sets, downing Lamar's Carolina Maso, 6-2, 7-5 to take home the flight two singles championship.

Not only did the two combine to go 6-0 in singles competition on the weekend, but neither one lost a single set. The two flight wins were tied for the most by any school in the tournament, as Rice also recorded two of its own.

Senior Celia Fraser technically earned the flight seven singles title as well, as her opponent withdrew from the finals match due to travel restrictions. Fraser finished the tournament with a 2-0 singles mark, without dropping a single set.

Freshman Despoina Vogasari rebounded nicely after an opening day defeat to win the flight one consolation championship, as she took down Texas State's Jessica Kahts, 7-5, 7-5.

The Cougars also had solid doubles showings over the weekend, as two tandems clinched spots in their flight finals. Charlotte Phillips and Tina Rupert made the flight two final, while Fraser and Dionne Sanders qualified for the flight four final.

"It was another great day on our home courts for us," said head coach Patrick Sullivan. "I can't say enough about how proud I am with our effort and how far the team has come since August. "We still have a lot of work to do before the season starts, but I'm really happy with our progress and I think we have a chance to do something pretty special this spring if we continue to work hard into the break and come back in January as tough as we were this weekend."

"I also want to thank Brandon Hiett, Jeremy McDonald, and all of their staff for helping us run a first-rate tournament this weekend. The work they do makes this a great a event, and therefore helps us attract teams from all over the nation."

After closing the 2013 fall campaign on a high note, the focus immediately shifts to the 2014 spring season, where the Cougars will aim make their presence felt nationally as they'll carry in the sixth-best recruiting class in the country.
