1998 Season - C-USA Tournament Champions 13-11
Postseason: NCAA Tournament Second Round | Coach: Stina Mosvold (5th season)
Following a breakout 1997 season that saw a final ranking of No. 38 and the program's first NCAA Regional appearance, head coach and former Houston All-American Stina Mosvold led the Cougars to their first C-USA Championship in 1998. Playing a loaded schedule, the Cougars (13-11) pulled off nine wins over ranked opponents, including three-straight at the C-USA Tournament in Houston over Southern Miss, Marquette and UAB. Houston made it four-consecutive wins over ranked teams with an opening-round victory over No. 29 Texas A&M in the NCAA Tournament before ultimately bowing out against No. 16 Arkansas. The Houston roster was loaded with All-C-USA selections (Susanne Andersson - 1st, Luciane Kelbert - 2nd, Galina Seliounina - 2nd, Mette Sigmundstad - 3rd), while Andersson finished the season ranked No. 103 in singles play and joined Sigmundstad in doubles play for a No. 50 ranking.
Houston's final season in Conference USA was filled with optimism for the future, as first-year head coach Patrick Sullivan led the Cougars to their first win over a ranked opponent since 2008 and returned to the national rankings as a team for the first time since 2006. Along with the team's return to national relevance, Sullivan signed the nation's No. 6 recruiting class for 2013 according to TennisRecruiting.net. Senior Maja Kazimieruk put together one of the most consistent seasons in program history, going 18-4 in singles play, which ranks seventh all-time in winning percentage (.818), while also teaming up with sophomore>Celia Fraser for a 15-3 mark in doubles play. Kazimieruk ended her Houston career ranking sixth in program history with 57 dual match singles victories.
