The UH women's tennis team fell to No. 75 Texas-El Paso in a
hard-fought dual match last week.

The Cougars are 7-5 on the year and are ranked No. 64.

The Cougars lost the doubles point to begin the match, putting
Houston in a hole the team could not quite climb out of.

In doubles, UH's No. 1 team of senior Sarah Borwell and junior Jen
Baccarani won 8-3 over UTEP's Joanna Furdyna and Maria
Gonzales, moving their record to 10-2 on the year.

The other UH doubles team struggled, losing its matches to UTEP.

Borwell, ranked No. 15 in the nation, won in three sets over
Elizabeth Stone, 6-7 (3-7), 7-5, 6-0.

Senior Jo Keene, playing at the No. 3 spot, moved her record to
12-0, beating Callie Dand 6-4, 6-4.

Junior Analia Longoni defeated Kendall Exelby 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, at the
No. 4 position.

Baccarani was named the Conference USA Player of the Week after
going 3-0 in singles matches for the week ending March 11.
Baccarani dropped a match 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6) to UTEP's Furdyna.

Kailey Meisinger lost a tough match to Tea Spirta 6-0, 6-2, and
Kandace Ridgeway lost to Elisa Bjorklund 6-1, 6-0.

The Cougars will take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock on
Friday, then return home to face Southern Methodist at the Hoff
Tennis Center on the UH campus.
