Both tennis teams returned to San Antonio for a clean sweep this past weekend.
“It was a good weekend for the Cats,” Micah Hermsdorf said.
Before heading to the Alamo City, the women’s team was here at home as they took on a double header, playing the University of El Paso (UTEP) and the University of the Texas Permian Basin (UTPB).
The ladies put up a fight against the El Paso Miners, as they won all of their doubles matches and 3 of 6 singles, as Hannah Kelley’s match against Anastasiya Sylenko went unfinished.
The duo sets of Julia Mongin and Brittney Reed and Nada Maranjovic and Kaysie Hermsdorf celebrated an 8-2 victory in doubles.
Kelley and partner Micah Hermsdorf also enjoyed an 8-3 win in doubles.
The Wildcats had no problems as they landed the Falcons of UT Permian Basin a 6-0 defeat.
Reed, Kelley, Maranjovic, Emily Conrad and Jamie Lee Denton were all victorious in their matches.
Sunday, the team challenged St. Mary’s University and the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA).
The team won 4 of 6 of their singles matches and 2 of 3 doubles matches.
Mongin defeated Felicity Delgado 6-1, 6-3. Hannah Kelley took on Ariana Saldana winning 6-1, 6-0. Conrad challenged Joanie Bryant 6-2, 6-4 and Kaysie Hermsdorf matched with Valentine Lambrechts 6-4, 6-0.
With a 6-3 victory under their belts, the lady Wildcats faced off against UTSA.
The team dominated in 5 of 6 singles and 2 of 3 doubles matches, though partners Kaysie and Nada’s match went unfinished.
“We played tough matches,” Julia Mongin said, “Our strength was to stay together and fight hard.”
The women’s team now has a five-win streak.
Before the men’s team could join the women in San Antonio, they made a stop in Austin, to match up with UT. The team fell 0-7 to the Longhorns.
They ended their losing streak when they came out on top against St. Mary’s 5-2.
They won 2 of 3 doubles and only 3 of 6 singles, despite both matches of Borja Cortes and Marco Bensley ending unfinished.

Nicklas Wingord matched with Carlos Olea 6-3, 6-3.
