Last weekend, the UTSA women's tennis team hosted their last two regular season competitions before they head off to Nacogdoches, Texas for the Southland Conference Tournament the last weekend in April.
Saturday saw the Roadrunners battle Lamar University in a close competition that started off great with two wins by the doubles teams of Peana/Jonsson and Silva/Carrillo but took a turn for the worse as the first four of the singles matches ended in losses for the Roadrunners. Stephanie Peana and Isabelle
Jonsson rallied to add a couple of last minute wins for UTSA, but in the end, the Lady Cardinals edged out the Roadrunners 4-3.
On Sunday, UTSA faced the McNeese State Cowgirls. The Roadrunners were victorious in five of the seven matches to take the day 5-2. Because of possible rain, the competition began with singles matches instead of doubles. The Roadrunners gained another early lead, winning two of the first three matches. Meanwhile, Stephanie Peana traded blows with McNesse's Tea Tvrtkovic.
The Roadrunners have enough wins to secure a spot in the Southland Conference Tournament, which will be held April 27-29 in Nacogdoches, TX. UTSA will compete as the eighth seed and take on the Ladyjacks of Stephen F. Austin.
