We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green women's tennis.
North Texas tennis continued its run of recent success with its second Sun Belt Conference Championship in the last three seasons in 2011-12. Complete with four new athletes, the Mean Green won a total of 18 matches for the first time since the 1984-85 season and finished the season ranked among the nation's top-55 teams at No. 54. NT defeated three different ranked teams in 2011-12 in No. 53 Kansas State, No. 50 Cal Poly and grabbed its first ever victory of No. 44 TCU.
Head Coach Sujay Lama was named the Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year and senior Paula Dinuta was awarded the Sun Belt Tournament Most Outstanding Player. Lama also became the programs all-time wins leader in April when the Mean Green wrapped up its undefeated conference schedule against Middle Tennessee and Troy. Dinuta and Junior Ilona Serchenko lead the team with 16 dual match wins a piece, and seven of the eight members of the Mean Green finished with a .500 or better record.

The men finished in a tie for second at the conference tournament and finished in the top 5 in nine of their 10 regular season tournaments. The women finished fourth in the conference tournament and won four regular-season tournaments.
