The Mean Green tennis team finished out the UNLV Invitational with a single and doubles tournament champions.
North Texas freshman Alexis Thoma won her Flight Three finals round by defeating UNLV’s own Santa Shumilina (7-5, 7-6) this Sunday.
“The experience I had this weekend was something that was almost indescribable,” said Thoma. “Having a team that supports you 100 percent of the way is the most amazing and secure feeling, I am very excited to see what the rest of the season has to offer.”
Mean Green newcomer’s Kamilla Galieva and Ana Sofia Cordeo won their Flight Three consolation doubles match against Northern Arizona (8-5).
Cordeo was victorious in consolation finals against Long Beach State (6-4, 3-6, 6-2), placing her third in Flight Five.
