UH Tennis smashes the Broncs

Cougar Sports Services

It only took two canceled matches for the Cougar tennis team to finally gets its spring season underway. It turned out to be worth the wait Saturday at the John E. Hoff Varsity Tennis Courts.

Freshman Yolandi Terblanche was one of two tennis players to lead the Cougars to a clean sweep of Texas Pan American on Saturday. She won her singles match 6-0, 6-0.

Cold weather forced the cancellation of Fridayis match against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Dreary weather made it look like Saturdayis matches would be wiped out. While it was too cold for the Cougarsi scheduled match against McNeese State, temperatures crept up just enough for the team to begin play against Texas Pan American.

The wait may have given the Cougars enough energy to wipe out the Lady Broncs, 9-0. The team only lost 11 total games to UTPA. The Cougars swept all six singles matches and won two of the three doubles competitions, 8-0.

Senior Analia Longoni and freshman Yolandi Terblanche were the most dominant players of the day, winning both of their matches 6-0, 6-0. Junior Karine Urbin and freshman Cristina Rueda Flores won their matches 6-1, 6-1.

The Corpus Christi and McNeese State matches will be rescheduled.

UH will next travel to Fort Worth to begin Conference USA action against Texas Christian at noon Saturday.
