UH won all six of its singles matches, with Schouten, Trencheva and sophomore Maria Dzemeshkevich all winning in straight sets.

Cortijo Parreno had the closest match of the day. After narrowly dropping her first, she came back to pull out a tough 5-7, 7-6, 10-6 victory to end the day.

The Cougars improved 5-3 on the season, and 9-0 all-time against Stephen F. Austin.

Next weekend, UH will travel to Lafayette, La. to face Nicholls and Louisiana.
