UTEP’s Raven Bennett Named C-USA Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Month

UTEP sophomore Raven Bennett was named Conference USA Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Month announced by the league on Wednesday. She is the first to earn the honor since Danielle King was named WAC Athlete of the Month in 2003.

Bennett opened the 2016 fall season by posting a 7-0 mark and back-to-back flight championship titles in singles for the month of September. At the NM State Women’s Invitational, the sophomore defeated opponents of New Mexico State and Grand Canyon for the Gold Flight Singles title.

In doubles, Bennett and teammate Daphne Visscher took a third-place finish after two wins against Grand Canyon.

The Mesquite, Texas, native followed that performance with another successful one at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational in Tucson with wins over time conference-foe UTSA, New Mexico State and Arizona to reach the championship round of the Blue Flight Singles. In the final round, Bennett faced a tough battle against Northern Arizona but came out with the championship title with a 7-6 (8), 7-5 win.

Bennett and Visscher once again paired up for a 3-1 record in doubles at the Wildcat Invitational. This Bennett’s second C-USA award her career.

The Miners will continue the fall schedule with the ITA Regional Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. held Oct. 12-16.
