Tennis wins two of three

The tennis team improved to 3-1 after posting two victories over the weekend at John E. Hoffs Courts.

The Cougars opened the weekend with wins over Louisiana Tech and Texas-Pan American, but fell to Northwestern State 6-1 on Sunday.

After having its spring season delayed by Sam Houston State’s forfeiture on Feb. 12, UH recorded its first on-court win with a 6-1 victory over Louisiana Tech on Friday. UH earned victories in each of its doubles matches to take an early 1-0 lead. The Cougars suffered their first loss when Elena Kazakova lost to Vivian ten Dolle, but they reeled off five straight wins to finish the afternoon.

Saturday UH defeated Texas-Pan American 5-2 on Saturday and again started the day with three straight doubles wins.

UH takes the court next when it hosts Southeastern Louisiana at 1 p.m. March 3.
