UTEP Tennis To Return To Courts For Three Matches In Four Days

The UTEP tennis team will play three matches in four days in a busy stretch of action, competing at Stephen F. Austin (12 p.m. MT Sunday), against Sam Houston State (12 p.m. MT Monday) and at Houston (12 p.m. MT Wednesday).

The Miners (3-9) will be looking to recapture their form they displayed when they won two of three at home before being saddled with the current four-match skid.

“We are excited to be heading out on the road again,” UTEP head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We have three tough matches ahead of us. We continue to work hard and look to fight with everything we have to represent UTEP with class and pride.”

Setting the tone for the Miners will be freshman Kirsten Prelle at No. 1 singles. She has forged a mark of 7-4 in dual play at the top position, with three of those setbacks coming in super tiebreakers. Sophomore Erandi Martinez stands 5-5 in dual season, aided by going 5-3 at No. 3 singles.

Senior Yvette Van Oijen, who missed the fall portion of the campaign with an injury, has battled back to compile four wins in the spring. Freshmen Rine Nozaki and Kathleen Percegona each sport three dual victories while junior Vanessa Valdez has two triumphs this spring to her name.

Valdez and Van Oijen have teamed up to record a mark of 6-5 in doubles play this spring. That is followed by the freshmen pairing of Prelle and Percegona standing at 5-4. Martinez and Nozaki have worked together to produce three wins in doubles.

Stephen F. Austin has registered a mark of 4-5 in 2019 dual play, including 1-1 in home action. Sam Houston State boasts a record of 8-4 on the season, helped by winning five of the past six matches. Meanwhile Houston is a solid 9-5, including a stout mark of 7-2 when playing on its home courts.
