The Mean Green (9-11) jumped out to an early lead in two doubles matches before holding on for a narrow victory.
"It was great to have the seniors finish their last home matches with a win," said head coach Sujay Lama. "Today, we competed hard against a scrappy team. We are playing with confidence and conviction heading into conference championships. We are excited to defend our title."
The doubles duo of Amy Joubert and Nadia Lee were able to capture the first match of the day when they took down the Trojans Rosura Ramierez-Vega and Olfa Dahoui 8-3.
Troy would capture the next match on court three before the No. 1 pair of Irina Paraschiv and Barbora Vykydalvoa won the point clinching match in a tiebreaker 9-8 (7-2).
Singles saw Joubert capture the perfect senior day early, sweeping the Trojans Gabriella Veiga 6-4, 6-1.
"Winning my last two home matches was a great feeling," said Joubert. "I tried to leave everything on the court so that I would have no regrets and it was just a great way to close my career at North Texas. My focus right now is definitely to try lead to the team to another conference championship!"
From there the Mean Green would win the No. 3 slot in doubles, with Paula Dinuta burning past Leonie Guijt in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2.
After Troy captured court two, Lee clinched the match at the No. 4 singles slot with a three set victory, 6-2, 3-6, 6-0.
