UTEP Tennis falls at UTSA 4-1

SAN ANTONIO   – The UTEP tennis team secured the doubles point, but couldn’t carry that momentum into singles action in an eventual 4-1 setback at UTSA on Sunday.

“We won the doubles point by playing with a lot of energy,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “That quickly faded in the singles (action). We again could not maintain our level and focus before the match slipped away from us. I know the team is learning from this, and I expect them to turn it around in due time.”

Thássane Abrahim and Eve Daniels got things going with a solid 6-3 triumph against Catalina Cabrique and Laura Baroja at No. 3 doubles. The Miners then locked up the doubles point after Vanessa Valdez and Lina Sáchica blasted Sophie Omoworare and Kylee Kato, 6-2, at No. 2. Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga were trailing, 5-2, against Jasmin Starr and Keegan McCain when the match went unfinished.

UTEP looked poised to post its second straight victory in the series against UTSA, but the Roadrunners rallied in singles action. Valdez was clipped by Starr, 6-4, 6-2, at No. 1 singles.

Martinez went down fighting, 6-4, 6-4, against Baroja at No. 2 singles.

Percegona was clipped, 7-5, 6-0, by Kato at No. 3 singles and Abrahim was dispatched, 6-3, 6-2, at No. 6 singles.

Sáchica was locked up in a good one with Laura Cabrera at No. 4 singles, with the score standing 6-4, 0-6, 3-3, when it went unfinished. It was the same story for Aveiga at No. 5 against Cabrique. Her score was 1-6, 7-6, 4-3, when it too was halted.

UTEP will look to bounce back when it plays host to Chicago State at 12 p.m. MT on March 16. The match will be held at the El Paso Tennis Club, and admission is free.

Abrahim picks up win as Miners clipped at Texas State

SAN MARCOS, Texas – Freshman Thássane Abrahim posted a 6-4, 6-4, win against Chacadyah Lewis at No. 5 singles to highlight the action for UTEP in its 6-1 defeat at Texas State on Friday.

The freshman moved to 3-3 at the No. 5 position in dual action this spring.

“It was one of those days that we had a lot of chances but couldn’t take advantage of them,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We are still learning how to compete at this level, and I know we have better days ahead of us.”

Vanessa Valdez and Lina Sáchica battled but fell, 6-4, to Sofia Murcia-Rodriguez and Josefina Cassara at No. 2 doubles. UTEP’s tandem of Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga was knocked off, 6-2, by Hana Kvapilova and Rishona Lewis at the No. 1 position.

Abrahim and Eve Daniels were leading Chacadyah Lewis and Andrea Fuchs, 5-4, at No. 3 doubles when the match was stopped due to the doubles point having been decided.

Abrahim did her part to try to spark a UTEP rally in singles, posting the win in straight sets over Chacadyah Lewis. TSU took care of business on the other courts, though, to secure the victory. Lewis upended Valdez, 6-2, 6-2, at No. 1 singles. Erandi Martinez went down to Kvapilova, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 2 singles.

Percegona fought hard only to sustain a 6-4, 6-4, setback at No. 4 singles. Sáchica was tripped up by Cassara, 6-3, 6-3, at No. 3 singles. Elena Dibattista split her first two sets (6-3, 5-7) with Gonzalez before her foe staked the match in a super tiebreaker.

UTEP will look to get back on track when it squares off at Conference USA foe UTSA at 9 a.m. MT/10 a.m. CT Sunday.

UTEP Tennis knocked off By Wyoming

Kathleen Percegona posted a win in an epic super tiebreaker as the UTEP tennis team fell to Wyoming, 6-1, at the El Paso Tennis Club on Sunday.

The sophomore knocked off Ana Fernandez, 6-2, 4-6, 12-10, in No. 3 singles, highlighting the action for the Miners (4-8) against the Cowgirls (7-2).

“Our youth and inexperience definitely showed today,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We were not consistent enough in both singles and doubles to compete better. If we had found a way to keep more balls in the court, we would have had a better chance to win today. We are fighting hard, but our mental toughness is letting us down. Kell (Kathleen Percegona) had a great weekend, winning both singles and a doubles match. We will continue to work hard to keep improving and get ready to hit the road again next weekend.”

The match commenced with doubles, with the visitors staking the lead as result of victories at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles. Percegona and Maria Aveiga were upended by Maria Oreshkina and Oleksandra Balaba, 6-3, at the top position.

Vanessa Valdez and Lina Sáchica fell, 6-1, against Ida Krause and Mihaela Kaftanova, at the second spot. Eve Daniels and Thássane Abrahim were leading Ana Royo and Clara Mansart, 5-2, when the match went unfinished.

UTEP’s hopes of rallying didn’t come to fruition in singles action. Percogona did her part with the super tiebreaker win against Fernandez, but Wyoming took care of business on the other courts. Erandi Martinez battled before falling, 6-2, 7-5, against Oreshkina, at No. 1 singles.

Sáchica went down swinging to Balaba, 6-4, 6-4, at No. 2 singles. Aveiga was clipped, 6-3, 6-1, by Krause at No. 3 singles. Abrahim was dispatched, 6-3, 6-3, by Royo at No. 5 singles. Daniels went down, 6-2, 6-1, to Kaftanova at No. 6 singles.

UTEP will look to regain its winning ways when it plays at Texas State at 12 p.m. MT Friday. The Miners will then wrap up the weekend on the road at UTSA at 10 a.m. MT Saturday.

UTEP Tennis blasts Montana State 5-2

The UTEP tennis team (4-7) won all three doubles matches before picking up wins at positions three through six in singles action on the way to a 5-2 home vanquishing of Montana State (2-8) Saturday afternoon.

“We got off to a great start by winning all three doubles matches,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “I knew the singles were going to be a battle. Lina (Sáchica) was able to get her win quickly followed by Elena (Dibattista) getting her first win of her career…then Thássane (Abrahim) fought back after losing the first set to clinch the match for us in three sets. Kell (Kathleen Percegona) was also able to win in three sets. It was a solid team effort today. It was great to win from 3-6 in the lineup, which is something we have not done this semester. I’m very proud of the girls and the effort they gave today.”

Vanessa Valdez and Lina Sáchica started things off by toppling Caitlin Ward and Evi Buijsen, 6-3, at No. 2 doubles. Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga followed suit with a 6-3 dispatching of Laura Mary and Linnea Fristam at the No. 1 position.

For good measure Eve Daniels and Thássane Abrahim made it a clean sweep with a 7-6 dispatching of Mirte Van Baelen and JJ Chen at No. 3 doubles.

UTEP kept things going once singles action commenced, with Sáchica cruising to a 6-1, 6-2, triumph over Van Baelen at No. 3 singles. The Miners extended the lead to 3-0 after the Italian Dibattista took down Daphne Haverkamp, 6-3, 6-1, for her first career victory. The effort came at No. 6 singles.

MSU got a win at No. 1 singles after Mary snuck past Valdez, 6-2, 6-2, but the Orange and Blue immediately struck back. Abrahim dropped the first set to Chen, 6-0, at No. 5 singles, but she regrouped and claimed the final two sets, 6-4, 6-4, to clinch the match for the home side.

UTEP then got another three-set victory, this time with Percegona besting Ward, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, at No. 4 singles.

Martinez battled only to come up shy in three sets to Fristam, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 2 singles, but by that point UTEP had already clinched the match.

UTEP will shoot for its second straight win when it plays host to Wyoming at 10 a.m. MT Sunday. The match will be contested at the El Paso Tennis Club, and admission is free.

UTEP Tennis returns home for pair of matches this weekend

Following three straight weekends of road action, the UTEP tennis team returns home this weekend for a pair of matches.

The Miners (3-7) will play host to Montana State (2-7) at 1 p.m. MT Saturday, in addition to squaring off against Wyoming (5-2) at 10 a.m. MT Sunday.

“After three weekends on the road we are very excited to be back home at the El Paso Tennis Club,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We have been playing better and better with each match so far, and we look to continue to build on that this weekend.”

Most recently the Orange and Blue split a pair of matches in Las Vegas, Nev., rallying to defeat Youngstown State, 4-3, on Feb. 21 before being clipped, 4-0, at UNLV on Feb. 23. Including the matches on Saturday and Sunday, UTEP has only four home contests remaining on the ledger. The Miners are 1-2 in the Sun City in 2020, but they are looking to improve upon that mark this weekend.

Junior Erandi Martinez tops the team in dual-match wins (5-4), including a 3-1 mark at No. 3 singles. Lina Sáchica and Vanessa Valdez are tied for second on the unit with a quartet of victories in 2020, while Kathleen Percegona and Eve Daniels each boast three triumphs.

Daniels and Sáchica have teamed up to produce a solid 4-4 mark in dual play, which is aided by a 2-1 record at No. 2 doubles. The pairing also has two wins at the No. 3 position. Maria Aveiga and Percegona have held down the fort at No. 1 doubles.

Both matches will be contested at the El Paso Tennis Club, and admission is free.

UTEP Tennis tripped up by UNLV

LAS VEGAS – The UTEP tennis team played hard, but couldn’t put it all together in a 4-0 road setback to UNLV. The Miners (3-7) were in search of their second straight win after rallying past Youngstown State, 4-3, on Feb. 21, but the homestanding Rebels (3-5) had other ideas.

“We competed well on several courts but could not maintain the momentum,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We are getting better with every match, but due to our youth there is a lack of discipline in finishing when we are up. This will get better as we mature. I felt like we had chances to win at three through six but could not stay in the match long enough. We will continue to work and get ready for next weekend.”

UTEP fell behind early with UNLV taking the doubles point as result of outcomes on No. 1 and No. 3 doubles. Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga lost, 6-1, to En-Pei Huang and Izumi Asano, at No. 1 doubles.

UTEP’s Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica fell by the same score to Samantha Li and Hsuan-Yu Lin at No. 3. Vanessa Valdez and Erandi Martinez were leading Connie Li and Sam Smith, 4-3, at No. 2 doubles when the match was halted.

The Miners had dropped the doubles point against YSU on Feb. 21 and were able to rally for the victory, but it wasn’t in the cards on Sunday. Huang bested Sáchica, 6-1, 6-0, at No. 2 singles, while Thássane Abrahim was tripped up by Smith, 7-5, 6-1, at No. 5 singles. UNLV clinched the match after Asano clipped Valdez, 6-3, 6-3, at No. 1 singles.

Martinez locked up with Connie Li at No. 3. The score was 7-5, 5-1, in favor of Li when it went unfinished. Percegona took the first set, 6-2, against Olivia Elliott. She was trailing, 5-3, in the second set when the match was stopped.

Daniels was behind, 6-3, 5-2, to Samantha Li at No. 6 singles when that match as well was stopped.

UTEP will look to build on the momentum it gained in Vegas when it returns home for match-ups with Montana State (1 p.m. MT) on Feb. 29 and Wyoming (10 a.m. MT, March 1). Admission is free.

UTEP rallies to beat Youngstown State 4-3

LAS VEGAS, Nv. – The UTEP tennis team fell behind after dropping the doubles point, but roared back behind singles wins from Vanessa Valdez, Erandi Martinez, Maria Aveiga and Thássane Abrahim to knock off Youngstown State 4-3, on Friday.

“We competed very well on all three doubles but dropped the point,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We came out fighting on all six singles. Tuca (Thássane Abrahim) started us off with a win at No. 5. Then Vane (Vanessa Valdez) won at No. 1 followed by Mafer (Maria Aveiga) at No. 4 and Erandi (Martinez) at No. 3. It was a very closely-fought match, but I’m very proud of the girls for closing the match, 4-1, before dropping the last two matches. It was a great win for us today. We are starting to see some improvement, and I know we can keep it going.”

The Penguins (2-4), who had won two of the past three matches, took the early lead in the match after picking up wins in doubles play at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions. Tamara Teufl and Elvira Esteo snuck past Kathleen Percegona and Aveiga, 7-5, at No. 1 doubles. Imaan Hassim and Jessica Stanmore held off Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica, 6-3, at No. 2 doubles.

UTEP’s Valdez and Martinez derailed Claudia Barboza and Lucia Zagar, 6-3, at No. 3 doubles, but YSU still held the lead going into singles action.

It proved to be inconsequential for the Orange and Blue, who emerged victorious on four of the courts to pull off the impressive comeback. Abrahim got things going by drilling Moraleja, 6-1, 6-3, at No. 5 singles. Valdez followed suit by blasting Teufl, 6-2, 6-3, at the top slot.

Aveiga kept things going with a hard-fought 7-6, 6-4, victory over Zagar at No. 4 singles. Martinez capped the rally with a 7-5, 7-6, triumph against Stanmore at No. 3 singles.

Daniels battled only to fall in three sets, 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, at the hands of Esteo at No. 6. Sáchica secured the first set, 6-2, at No. 2 singles against Hassim before coming up shy, 6-3, 6-3.

UTEP will look to build on the momentum of Friday’s win when it locks up with Weber State at 11 a.m. MT Saturday. The Miners will then wrap up the weekend at UNLV at 11 a.m. MT Sunday.

UTEP Tennis upended At North Texas

DENTON, Texas – The UTEP tennis team sustained a 7-0 setback at North Texas Sunday afternoon. The Miners (2-6) dropped the doubles point and were unable to rally against the Mean Green (7-2) in singles action.

“We were definitely outmatched today against a very solid North Texas team,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We had moments where we were competitive, but could not maintain that level. We will continue to work hard to keep improving a little every day.”

The match commenced in doubles where UTEP’s top pairing of Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga fought hard, but was edged by Alexandra Heczey and Hala Khaled Badwy, 6-4. Coupled with the result at No. 3 doubles with Erandi Martinez and Thássane Abrahim being tripped up by Sophia Hummel and Kexuan Zhou, 6-1, UNT took the doubles point. The match between Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica and UNT’s Maria Ponomareva and Nidhri Surapaneni went unfinished.

Freshman Elena Dibattista battled only to be held off by Haruka Sasaki, 7-5, 6-4, at No. 6 singles. Aveiga went down to Zhou by a score of 7-6, 6-1, at No. 5 singles. Abrahim was clipped by Hummel, 7-6, 6-3, at No. 4 singles.

Sáchica played at the top spot where she was tripped up by Heczey, 6-3, 7-5. Martinez’s bid to start a new winning streak didn’t come to fruition in her setback to Ponomareva, 6-0, 6-3, at No. 2 singles. Perceogna was clipped by Surapaneni, 6-3, 6-1, at No. 3 singles.

UTEP will be back in action with a trip to Las Vegas to play three matches in as many days in the coming weekend.

UTEP Tennis Knocked Off By LA Tech 5-2

DENTON, Texas – Vanessa Valdez posted a win in straight sets at No. 1 singles, Eve Daniels picked up a victory at No. 5 and Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga had some success in doubles in the UTEP tennis team’s 5-2 neutral-site setback to LA Tech in its Conference USA opener Saturday.

“Kell (Kathleen Percegona) and Mafer (Maria Aveiga) played great at No. 1 doubles, but we didn’t do enough at No. 2 doubles to get the point,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “In the singles we had a lot of chances, but could not make it work. Vane (Vanessa Valdez) had a great win at No. 1 singles.

Eve (Daniels) played very solid until her opponent retired while Eve was up in the set. Our youth and inexperience are still hurting us, but we should continue to improve with every match.”

Percegona and Aveiga were locked in to post a convincing 6-2 victory at No. 1 doubles against Nadja Manjon and Alexia Romero. UTEP’s Valdez and Erandi Martinez battled at No. 2 doubles before falling, 6-3, at the hands of Ana Jover and Claudia Oravcova.

Coupled with Andrea Perez-Lopez and Ilana Tetruashvili clipping the Miners’ tandem of Daniels and Lina Sáchica, 6-0, at No. 3 doubles, the Lady Techsters took the early lead in the match with the all-important doubles point.

Valdez did her part to rally the troops by defeating Manjon, 6-3, 7-5, at No. 1 singles. Daniels was leading Perez-Lopez, 7-6, 3-2, at No. 5 singles when her foe retired to give her the victory. UTEP played hard on the other courts, but couldn’t get the necessary results to pull out the come-from-behind win.

Sáchica was edged by Jover, 7-5, 7-5, at No. 2 singles. Martinez had her winning streak snapped by Tetruashvili, 6-4, 6-0, at No. 3 singles. Percegona suffered a similar fate by falling to Romero, 6-3, 6-0, at No. 4 singles. Thássane Abrahim fought for every point before narrowly falling to Oravcova, 6-4, 6-4.

UTEP will look to regain its winning ways when it plays at North Texas at 11 a.m. MT Sunday.

UTEP cruises past Texas Wesleyan 7-0

FT. WORTH – The UTEP tennis team will won every match contested in both singles and doubles play to polish off Texas Wesleyan, 7-0, on the road Friday afternoon.

The match was the first of three straight this weekend, with a pair of Conference USA opponents remaining on this trip. The Miners (2-4) will face LA Tech (6-4) in a neutral-site match (Denton, Texas) at 11 a.m. MT Saturday and lock up at North Texas (5-2) at 11 a.m. MT Sunday.

But on Friday, UTEP’s full focus was on Texas Wesleyan, which paid dividends in the form of a 7-0 victory.

“We played solid today,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “This was a good match for us before two C-USA opponents. It is always difficult for us to come down more than 3,000 feet in altitude, but we adjusted well and got it done. We still need to play better tomorrow (and Sunday) in order to be competitive vs. LA Tech and North Texas.”

UTEP quickly seized the doubles point. Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica blasted Mae Covacevich and Cecilia Salazar, 6-0, at No. 3 doubles. Vanessa Valdez and Erandi Martinez were also practically flawless in a 6-1 dispatching of Caitlin Souvannavong and Hannah Rey at No. 2 to lock up the point.

Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga had to work a bit harder but still took down Aurora Novati and Kara Onza Antonio, 7-5, at the No. 1 position.

Sáchica got UTEP going in singles by drilling Souvannavong, 6-0, 6-1, at No. 2 singles for her fourth dual win of the season. Martinez bested Onza Antonio, 6-3, 6-0, at No. 3 singles to match Sáchica for most dual single wins on the campaign.

Daniels blasted Covacevich, 6-0, 6-0, at No. 5 singles. Kathleen Percegona cruised by Rey, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 4 singles. Thássane Abrahim secured her first dual win of the spring after a convincing 6-1, 6-1, triumph against Salazar at No. 6 singles.

Valdez capped the perfect day with a 6-2, 7-6, vanquishing of Novati at the top spot.

UTEP will vie for its second straight win when it takes on LA Tech in its C-USA opener at 11 a.m. MT Saturday.

UTEP Tennis hits the road for three matches

The UTEP tennis team will play three matches in as many days on the road, including back-to-back contests against Conference USA foes.

The Miners will compete at Texas Wesleyan University (0-1) at 9 a.m. MT Friday, face LA Tech (6-4) in a neutral-site match (Denton, Texas) at 12 p.m. MT Saturday and lock up at North Texas (5-2) at 11 a.m. MT Sunday.

“After a quick turnaround we are back on the road to Denton,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We are excited to play a couple of C-USA matches this weekend. We have had a couple of different players play well the last few matches. Now we just need to get everyone playing well at the same time. If we can do that, we will be successful.”

Junior Erandi Martinez enters the weekend with momentum, having staked two victories in as many days against Idaho State (2/8) and Utah State (2/9). She has a team-best tying three dual wins in the spring, sharing the top spot with fellow classmate Lina Sáchica.

Sáchica (nine) and Martinez (six) rank one-two on the squad for total wins.

Freshman Eve Daniels and Sáchica have formed a solid bond in doubles play, forging a record of 3-1 in the spring (2-0 No. 2, 1-1 No. 3). The tandem has claimed consecutive matches in the spring and overall on the year has joined forces for a team-best five wins in doubles action.

Kathleen Percegona has gotten after in the spring as well with two wins in dual play, buoying the efforts of Martinez and Sáchicha.

UTEP Tennis falls at Utah State 6-1

LOGAN, Utah– Erandi Martinez posted her second win in as many days as the UTEP tennis team fell at Utah State, 6-1, on Sunday. The Miners’ tandem of Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica also picked up a victory.

“We are still learning,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We had to make some lineup changes today due to some injuries, and we adjusted as well as we could. We will continue to work to get back on track. Lina (Sáchica) and Eve (Daniels) had a great weekend in doubles. Erandi (Martinez) played great both days. She showed great fight and leadership. I’m super proud of her.”

Daniels and Sáchica capped a perfect weekend by besting Carolina Millan and Renata Lombera, 6-4, at No. 2 doubles. But the Miners (1-4) found themselves down in the match after the Aggies (3-0) secured doubles wins at No. 1 and No. 3. Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga were clipped by Sidnee Lavatai. And Hannah Jones, 6-3, at the top slot.

Martinez and Thássane Abrahim were tripped up by the same score at the No. 3 position by Zara Ryan and Gabrielle Dekkers.

Martinez bounced Lombera at No. 2 singles. She claimed the first set, 6-4, before falling, 7-5, in the second set. She regrouped to stake the super tiebreaker, 12-10, for her second straight victory. UTEP couldn’t get things going on the other courts, though, allowing homestanding Utah State to emerge victorious.

Sáchica fell to Octave, 6-3, 6-1, at No. 1 singles. Percegona was dispatched, 6-2, 6-1, at No. 3 singles by Ryan.

Daniels was upended by Jones, 6-2, 6-2, at No. 4 singles. Abrahim went down to Millan, 6-1, 6-3, at No. 5, and Elena Dibattista lost by the same score to Annaliese County at No. 6 singles.

UTEP Tennis upended by Idaho State 5-2

Erandi Martinez and Kathleen Percegona each notched wins in UTEP’s 5-2 setback to Idaho State on Saturday. The Miners’ doubles pairing of Eve Daniels and Lina Sáchica also tasted victory.

“We did not play to our potential today,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “This was a huge letdown after I felt like we had learned last weekend. We have a lot more work to do. Erandi (Martinez) and Kell (Kathleen Percegona) had a solid day today in singles. Erandi fought through this match and came out on top. Kell played extremely determined and took care of her court extremely well. I hope tomorrow we can bounce back. They just need to believe in themselves and the results will come.”

The Miners (1-3) picked up a win in doubles thanks to Daniels and Sáchica downing Madison Fenske and Melissa Coburn, 6-3, at No. 3 doubles. The Bengals (3-3) secured the doubles point, though, with Hristina Cvetkovic and Megan Poe clipping Vanessa Valdez and Martinez, 6-3, at No. 1 doubles and Alexandra Arkhipov and Angela Walker dispatching Percegona and Maria Aveiga, 6-2, at No. 2 doubles.

Percegona played practically flawless by drilling Poe, 6-0, 6-1, at No. 4 singles. Martinez also put her name into the win column with a 7-5, 6-3 vanquishing of Coburn at No. 3 singles.

The freshman Daniels fought hard only to be edged by Walker, 6-4, 6-4, at No. 5 singles. Aveiga sustained a similar setback, going down 6-4, 6-2, to Fenske at No. 6 singles. Sáchica was dealt her first loss of the spring when she was downed by Arkhipov, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 2 singles. She had played at No. 3 previously in the spring. Valdez was knocked off, 6-2, 6-1, by Cvetkovic.

UTEP will look to bounce back when it plays at Utah State at 10 a.m. MT Saturday.

Video+Story presented by GECU: Diverse UTEP Tennis Team looking to thrive in 2020 Season

The UTEP tennis team is comprised of 11 players from seven different countries, making it a melting pot of cultures both on and off the court.

The Miners have players from Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, England, Italy, Mexico and the United State, giving them an extremely diverse roster. Yet instead of letting their differences divide them, head coach Ivan Fernandez’s squad has embraced its diversity while forming bonds as strong as any family unit.

“Vanessa (Valdez) and Erandi (Martinez) are the leaders,” Kathleen Percegona, a sophomore from Brazil said. “We can learn a lot from them, and it’s nice to be a part of this team with them.”

Valdez is humble with her leadership approach, crediting the whole team.

“Everyone has different personalities,” Valdez noted. “Everyone is a different asset for the team that makes us like a family.”

Percegona, who traveled more than 5,450 miles to venture to El Paso, is happy to be a part of team with a distinct international flavor.

“It’s really good to be here and to play with girls from all over the world,” Percegona said. “It’s really nice to be able to play and study (at UTEP). It’s been amazing for me. I feel really comfortable at UTEP because everyone is from somewhere (else), and we can learn about some other cultures and languages.”

Freshman Eve Daniels, who hails from England, feels the same way.

“Being part of a team with lots of different cultures is really fun,” Daniels stated. “It’s good for me because I’m learning some new Spanish words. Everyone gets along really well. We all help each other with different aspects of our day. It’s really nice, it’s like a family.”

Freshman Elena Dibattista, who came the farthest of anyone on the roster by venturing more than 6,200 miles from Italy, has already made strong connections with her teammates. She also has befriended members of the UTEP women’s basketball team, as by chance she was on the same flight as them during one of her five flights to arrive in El Paso.

Valdez is appreciative of the diversity the team presents.

“It’s pretty nice because you get to meet people from a lot of different cultures and traditions,” Valdez said. “Everyone gets to know each other more and about different traditions.”

Fernandez and assistant coach Joanna Furdyna do a good job working to develop strong relationships on the squad, on and off the court.

“The coaches really help with helping the team to support each other through the matches,” Daniels said. “They make sure we are doing team-bonding exercises, and that we support each other.”

There are a variety of ways the staff accomplishes this, as Valdez describes.

“We try to do a lot of activities outside of playing tennis and practices,” Valdez said. “Sometimes we have dinners or go to entertainment places. Every week we have a meeting, and everyone gets to talk about how they feel. If we had a match the week before, we get to talk about it. We talk about how we felt, things we need to improve.”

As unique of a dynamic there is to the Miners’ make-up as a squad, there’s also something special about being a team while playing an individual sport. But much like the meshing of personalities to become a family, UTEP done the same when figuring out how to build comradery on the court.

“Everyone is trying to hold each other accountable when we play,” Valdez said. “You are on the court by yourself, but you are also playing for your teammates. You turn around and see your teammates playing, and you know that you need to get more strength if you are in a difficult situation. You have to try to put (forward) your best in every match.”

That is a sentiment that is echoed by Percegona.

“Team chemistry is really important,” Percegona said. “We need to be able to take and give energy to each other. It’s really important to have trust in each other in order to play our best.”

Another area that everyone is agreement in is about what type of season UTEP is hoping to have this spring. The Miners got off to a good start to the year by blitzing Western New Mexico, 7-0, on Jan. 25, and aspire to build on that this weekend and beyond.

“We want to have a winning record,” Valdez says of team goals. “We also want to do very well in conference and advance as many rounds as we can (at the conference tournament).”

Percegona is optimistic as well.

“I think we can do amazing things together,” Percegona said. “I hope we can finish the year with good results with everyone really happy and satisfied.”

UTEP tripped Up By I-25 rival New Mexico 4-1

Lina Sáchica cruised to a win in straight sets, but the UTEP tennis team was dispatched by I-25 rival New Mexico, 4-1, at the El Paso Tennis & Swim Club Sunday afternoon.

“It was another tough day,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We are fighting on every court and were up on many courts and just couldn’t close it out. We are young and learning with every match. I’m extremely proud of Lina (Sáchica), who was able to close out her matches both days. She is showing great energy, and I hope the rest of the team can match that in the matches to come.”

The Lobos (1-1) took the early lead in the match after staking victories at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles. Bronte Murgett and Natasha Munday dispatched Vanessa Valdez and Erandi Martinez, 6-2, at the top slot. Kathleen Percegona and Maria Aveiga were clipped by Sara Kuuttila-Webbert and Myu Kageyama, 6-1, at No. 2 doubles.

With the doubles point decided the match at No. 3 went unfinished. UTEP’s Eve Daniels and Sáchica were leading the UNM tandem of Alisia Manolescu and Yue Lin Chen, 5-3, at the time it was halted.

The Miners (1-2) looked to rally in singles action behind Sáchica. The junior drilled Manolescu, 6-3, 6-2, at No. 3 singles for her second victory in as many days. UTEP battled on the other courts, but was unable to finish off matches.

Kuuttila-Webbert held off Valdez, 6-1, 7-5, at No. 1 singles. Martinez was bounced by Murgett, 6-1, 6-3, at No. 2 singles. Eve Daniels was knocked off by Danielle Quevedo, 7-5, 6-0, at No. 5 singles. Due to the team outcome being decided, two matches went unfinished.

In No. 4 singles Percegona dropped the first set to Munday, 7-5, but was leading the second set, 4-2, when action stopped. Aveiga lost the opening set to Kageyama, 6-4, at No. 6 singles. The second set was tied, 6-6, when play was halted.

UTEP will be back in action with a pair of matches next weekend. The Miners will face Idaho State in a neutral-site contest on Feb. 8 and then play at Utah State on Feb. 9.
