We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green women's tennis.
The 2014-15 season was one of close calls for the North Texas tennis team. The Mean Green went 9-14, but five of those losses were of the 4-3 variety, including the team's season-ending loss to No. 66 Old Dominion in the Conference USA Tournament quarterfinals. Overall, 11 of North Texas' 23 opponents were nationally ranked. Junior Anastasiya Shestakova led the Mean Green with 11 singles wins and all three doubles teams reached double-digit victories.
Seniors Kseniya Bardabush and Franziska Sprinkmeyer emerged as leaders for the Mean Green, as the two finished their careers with a combined 102 singles wins. Bardabush earned C-USA Player of the Week on April 14 for the first time in her career and was named to All-Conference First Team for the fourth-consecutive season. Sprinkmeyer was one of six student-athletes in the conference to be named to the C-USA All-Academic team and Shestakova earned C-USA Second Team honors for the second-consecutive season.
Under head coach Sujay Lama, the tennis team has won three conference championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament three times in the last six years.
