The UTEP women’s tennis team will host its first and only conference match when the Miners face UTSA (9-8 overall, 0-1 conference) on Sunday, April 9 at the El Paso Tennis and Swim Club. First serve against the Roadrunners is 11 a.m.
The Miners (4-11 overall, 0-0 conference) are coming off a loss to New Mexico on March 24 and will get their first taste of league competition as they continue to prepare for the C-USA Championships later this month.
The Miners are one of only three teams (Charlotte, Southern Miss) that have not played a conference match to date.
Defending the home court for the Miners will be Milou Pietersz, Lois Wagenvoort, Daphne Visscher, Raven Bennett and Maria Paula Medina.
Bennett is on a four-match win streak and has garnered a 5-4 dual match record. The sophomore has teamed with Daphne Visscher at the No. 2 spot in doubles for a 7-6 dual match record, including a dominating 6-1 victory against Iowa State.
The Roadrunners will have played only one match in the past 20 days before meeting NM State on Friday and the Miners on Sunday. UTSA was edged by Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 4-3 last Wednesday.
Rice is the only conference foe the Runners have faced, which resulted in a 6-1 loss to the No. 39 Owls. The Runners are paced by senior Miriam Rosell Canudas, who slipped into the top 100 of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association singles rankings at No. 99. The Torello, Spain, native has kept a flawless record at 17-0 in dual-match singles play. In doubles action, Lina Hallgren and Charleen Tiwari lead the team with a 10-4 record at the No. 3 spot.
UTEP and UTSA have split their 18 contests against each other, with the Miners grabbing the win 4-1 last year in San Antonio.
Admission is free and fans are asked to wear white to “white out” the tennis club. Rally towels will be given to each spectator.
