The Javelina tennis team (9-5) beat the Prairie View A&M University Panthers (6-22) this past weekend, 4-3, for its third straight victory since being swept in their previous loss against Florida Southern University.
Ericka Larrea took the victory in singles competition 6-2, 6-2. Also in the mix with wins was Julia Rauer with a 6-1, 7-6 (7-3 tiebreak), and Victoria Romanovskaia 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
In doubles play, the Javelinas would earn two victories, which helped to give the Hoggies the advantage when the day was done.
Tabata Lua and Lisa Carvajal would win their matchup 6-3, and Larrea alongside Viviana Ortiz, would finish it off winning 6-4.
Although the Panthers were able to notch three wins of their own, it was not enough to overcome, and the Javelinas would bring home their second victory against a Division I opponent this season.
The Hoggies next test, will be a Lone Star Conference matchup against Cameron University, Mar. 30, at 1 p.m.
