Tennis star 'lobs' L.A.

Senior tennis ace Sarah Borwell will represent UH in a national tournament in Los Angeles the week beginning Monday.

The native of Middlesbrough, England, currently ranked No. 28 in the country in women's tennis singles, will join an elite field at the Riviera All-American

The C-USA first-team All-Conference singles player will pre-qualify for the meet Saturday and Sunday, when the field will be narrowed to 64 players.

To qualify to play for the singles title, Borwell must win four matches during the qualifying round to make it to the 32-player "Main Draw."

The kinesiology major, whose mother is a tennis coach, arrived at UH after spending a year at Rice University.

"I chose the University of Houston because the school has an excellent tennis team," Borwell said.

Borwell's career goal is to be a professional tennis player. The tournament in Los Angeles offers the Cougar star the opportunity to demonstrate her talents
in front of the tennis world.

In 1998-99, Borwell was named C-USA Second Team All-Conference and went 15-9 against players from the Southwest region. She won six straight
matches in the 128-field Southwest Regional before losing in the finals to Tara Reid of Arkansas.

Borwell will rejoin her teammates in Houston from Oct. 12 to 14 for the Cougar Fall Tennis Classic.
