ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The UTEP women’s tennis team fell short in getting the much-needed doubles point and ultimately fell 4-0 to New Mexico at the Estes Tennis Center in Albuquerque, N.M., on Friday. High winds moved the match indoors.
On court one in doubles play, Milou Pietersz and Lois Wagenvoort were unable to close against the Lobos’ Rachana Bhat and Dominique Dulski, falling 6-2 to give the Lobos the point and lead due to a forfeit on court three due to injury. Daphne Visscher and Raven Bennett had a 3-2 lead over Emily Oliver and Diana Wong on court two before their match was called.
In singles action, Pietersz fell to Burguiere 6-0, 6-3 to give the Lobos the set and match.
The Miners will look to get healthy in the next two weeks and will be back in action to defend their home court in the first and only Conference USA match April 9 against UTSA.
First serve against the Roadrunners is 11 a.m. at the El Paso Tennis and Swim Club.
