UTEP Tennis Closes Out Midland Invite

MIDLAND, Texas – The UTEP women’s tennis team concluded the Midland Invitational on Sunday with a singles match in both singles and doubles play.

In singles, Vivienne Kulicke was handed a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 setback by Texas Tech’s Sabrina Federici in her semifinals match. Kulicke and Milou Pietersz fell, 8-7 (8), to Katelyn Jackson and Lynn Kiro also of Texas Tech in the quarterfinals.

“Overall it was a great tournament,” head coach Roberto Aspillaga said. “Vivienne is becoming a stronger competitor by the day, and Milou’s learning curve has been impressive in both singles and doubles. She is improving quickly and I am very excited for the player she is becoming.”

The Miners finished the weekend with a record of 2-1 in doubles and 5-2 in singles. Next up for the UTEP squad is another tournament on the road. The Orange and Blue will compete in the New Mexico State Aggie Invitational on Sept. 24-25 in Las Cruces, N.M. in its second tournament of the season.
