UTEP Tennis Clipped By Weber State, 4-0

The UTEP tennis team was upended by Weber State, 4-0, in a neutral-site match-up in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The match against the Wildcats (2-2) was played in clinch-style format. Kathleen Percegona, Veronika Lebisova and Carlotta Mencaglia were all embarking on the third  set of their match when action was halted.

“Unfortunately again after making some changes in the lineup we could not find a way to be competitive on enough courts,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We had three matches starting the third set, but just ran out of time on the other courts. We are not playing consistently enough on too many courts, and that is what has cost us these last three matches.”

Eve Daniels and Lina Sachica were tripped up, 6-3, by Megan Lombardi and Yuuna Ukita on No. 3 doubles while Percegona and Mencaglia fell by a count of 6-2 to Sicely Ferreira and Megan Davies at No. 2 doubles. Thassane Abrahim and Lebisova were down, 2-5, when it went unfinished at the top spot.

Mencaglia and Kuo were locked up in a quality match at No. 4 singles , 6-1, 5-7, when it was stopped. Percegona was at 2-6, 6-3, 1-1 against Morett at No. 1 singles when it was halted while Lebisova was 6-2, 3-6, with Ukita when it went unfinished.

Lina Sachica was defeated, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 5 singles while Dibattista fell to Davies, 6-1, 6-2, at No. 2 singles. Laura Schmitz went down, 6-1, 6-1, against Ferreira at No. 6 singles.

The Miners (1-5) will vie to regain their winning ways at Boise State at 2 p.m. MT Friday. UTEP will also square off against Idaho State at 10.a.m. MT Saturday to wrap up the weekend in Idaho.
