The TCU women’s tennis team (12-13) split their last duals of the regular season last weekend. They added a non-conference dual with UTSA not previously on their schedule. The Frogs swept the Roadrunners 4-0. Then in the season finale, the Frogs were swept 0-4 by Texas Tech.
Here’s a look at those two outings:
TCU 4, UTSA 0 – April 15, Fort Worth, Texas
TCU won the doubles point with Stevie Kennedy and Aleska Cveticanin winning at No. 2, 6-2, and Helena Narmont and Isabel Pascual winning at No. 3, 6-3.
Narmont, at No. 6, gave the Frogs their second point of the dual in her singles match. She won the first set 6-3 against UTSA’s Sophie Omowore. Omowore then retired, giving the point to Narmont.
Pascual won her singles match in straight sets at No. 3, 6-4, 6-1, giving TCU a 3-0 lead. Mercedes Aristegui clinched the victory for TCU with her straight-set win at No. 2, 6-3, 6-2.
# 28 Texas Tech 4, TCU 0 – April 16, Dallas, Texas
As quickly as the sweep was on Friday for the Frogs, so was the sweep that came against them the next day. The Frogs hosted No. 28 Texas Tech in the final dual of the regular season. The Red Raiders came away with the 4-0 sweep over TCU.
In the doubles matches, Jade Otway and Alisa Soloveva won their set, 6-3, but Texas Tech won the other two sets to win the point.
Saturday was Senior Day, and the three seniors on the team, Cveticanin, Kennedy, and Soloveva, were all honored on the courts between the doubles and singles matches.
Texas Tech came out strong winning three straight matches in straight sets in the singles matches. Soloveva, playing at No. 1, was only two points away from winning her match before Texas Tech clinched the dual.
