Tennis – UH goes one for two in weekend matches
The Cougars lost to Rice on Saturday but quickly redeemed themselves Sunday by bouncing back to beat Sam Houston State.
The Cougars notched their first win at the John E. Hoff courts to top SHSU 5-2, and improved to 3-2 overall.
“It’s never going to be great tennis with 15 mph winds,” head coach John Severance said in a release. “We came out flat, but we prevailed and got the win. It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win nonetheless.”
The No. 48-ranked Rice outpaced the Cougars on Saturday to win the match 5-2, giving UH an 0-1 start in Conference USA.
The Cougars were scheduled to play St. Edwards on Friday, but it was postponed due to the icy weather conditions.
The Cougars next match is against UT Pan-American at 2 p.m. on Friday at John E. Hoff courts.
