March 22, 2013

HOUSTON - Winners of four of the last five matches, the University of Houston women's tennis team will play host to No. 33 TCU and No. 44 William and Mary this weekend at the Houston Country Club. The Cougars face off against the Horned Frogs at 1 p.m., on Saturday and follow with a Sunday match against the Tribe at 11 a.m.

Houston posted a convincing 6-1 victory over UALR on Tuesday to improve to 12-5 this season while increasing its record in the city of Houston to 7-1 in dual play. The Cougars have outscored their opposition by a 25-3 margin in their four wins over the past five outings.

Senior Maja Kazimieruk continues to pace the Cougars in singles play, currently riding a five-match winning streak for a 15-2 overall record. Sophomore Charlotte Phillips (10-6) and Dionne Sanders (9-4) have also been solid as of late behind Kazimieruk at the bottom of the order, stringing together winning streaks of four and three matches, respectively.

Kazimieruk has been just as impressive in doubles action, winning 10 consecutive matches with partner Celia Fraser for a team-leading 12-2 mark at the No. 3 position.

The 33rd-ranked Frogs enter Saturday's contest having won eight-straight matches for an 11-1 record, with the lone coming to No. 8 Alabama. TCU's lineup features three nationally ranked players in No. 65 Stefanie Tan, No. 79 Olivia Smith and No. 104 Simona Parajova.

No. 44 William and Mary travels to Houston with a 12-3 overall record, including three wins over nationally-ranked opponents, and features the country's fifth-ranked doubles tandem of Maria Belaya and Jeltje Loomans.

The Cougars have faced one nationally-ranked opponent this spring, topping No. 59 Stephen F. Austin by a score of 5-1 in the season opener.
