The UH women's tennis team split two matches over the weekend, getting a hard-fought 5-2 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday and falling
to Alabama 4-3 in a tough match Saturday.

The doubles matches proved to be pivotal to the outcome of each match.

The UH women's tennis team split two matches over the weekend, getting a hard-fought 5-2 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday and falling
to Alabama 4-3 in a tough match Saturday.

Against Cincinnati, the No. 1 doubles team of senior Sarah Borwell and junior Jen Baccarani defeated Khushchehr Italia and Jen Capuzzi
8-2. Borwell and Baccarani are now a perfect 5-0 this spring.

At the No. 3 position, senior Kailey Meisinger and freshman Kandace Ridgeway lost 8-3 to sophomore Lyndsey Molony and freshman
Julie Klauck. It was left to the No. 2 team of junior Analia Longoni and senior Jo Keen to win the point.

Longoni and Keen won in a marathon match 9-8, beating sophomore Leen Corneillie and freshman Samantha Liu.

With the doubles point in hand, the Cougars needed to win just three of the six singles matches. Borwell, the No. 8 singles player in the
nation, won 6-3, 6-2 over Capuzzi. Borwell is now 5-0 for the spring and 23-2 this year.

Baccarani beat Italia in two sets. Meisinger and Ridgeway lost tough matches at the No. 5 and 6 spots.

Keen cruised to a 6-3, 6-2 win over Corneillie. With the dual match already decided, Longoni fought for three sets to win the match 6-2, 4-6,
10-8.

Against Alabama, the No. 1 doubles team of Borwell and Baccarani easily finished off sophomore Millie Begovic and senior Weyli Chang
8-4.

Meisinger and Ridgeway dropped their match to senior Becca Baum and junior Stefanie Leung 8-2, so it was again left to the Cougars' No.
2 team of Longoni and Keen to win the point.

Longoni and Keen lost to the senior duo of Selia Mathew and Jenny Ketchum 8-4.

UH fought back valiantly. Borwell won her match 6-4, 6-2 over Mathew after dropping the first three games. Baccarani beat Begovic 6-4,
4-6, 6-4. Keen won in two sets 7-6, 6-4 over Sophie Kremmers.

The match was tied at 3-3 with Longoni still to finish. Unfortunately, the junior transfer couldn't quite pull off the huge comeback for the
Cougars. Longoni lost in three long sets to Alabama's Ketchum.

The Cougars go into action again this weekend when they take on Louisiana State and C-USA opponent Tulane on the road.
