ARLINGTON, Texas - UT Arlington men's and women's tennis coach Diego Benitez and golf coach Jay Rees are the guests on "Taco Talk" on Tuesday, May 13 at 5:30 p.m. at Fuzzy's Taco Shop at 510 East Abram St.

The women's tennis team finished the season with an overall record of 12-8 and entered the Sun Belt Conference Championship seeded No. 2. UTA swept Arkansas State 4-0 in the quarterfinals before South Alabama came back from a 3-1 deficit to claim a 4-3 victory over the Mavericks in the semifinals.

Sophomore Elizabeth Thoms split time with D'ortona at the top of the lineup, including a four-match winning streak to end the season. Thoms was named Sun Belt Conference Athlete of the Week on April 9 after helping her team sweep No. 55 North Texas in Denton and was named to the first team all-conference.

 UT Arlington men's tennis wrapped up its 2014 campaign in the Sun Belt Conference Championship semifinals. The Mavericks gained valuable experience with a roster built mainly around underclassmen.

Senior Javier Perez and sophomore Carlos Arbiza ended the season with a nationally ranking of 71st after being ranked as high as 40th. The duo was named to All-SBC Doubles First Team for their performance, while Arbiza was also named to the All-SBC Singles First Team. Arbiza also earned SBC Athlete of the Week on Feb. 26 after a 7-5, 6-4 win over the No. 32 player in the nation.

Golf made a run at an NCAA Regional after holding leads at the Sun Belt Championship all three days of the tournament. While the Mavericks came up short in extending their season, they did finish third in their first season in the 10-team Sun Belt.

About Fuzzy's Taco Shop
Fuzzy's Taco Shop, started on Berry Street in Fort Worth, Texas, was bought in 2003 by father and son restaurateurs Alan and Chuck Bush. After revamping the original store and crafting the perfect combination of tacos, drinks and success, they set out to share it with everyone.

Laced with feta and Fuzzy's sauce, the baja style tacos quickly led to unstoppable addictions and cult-like fans. And as some of those fans moved away to Fuzzy's-less towns, they began suffering serious withdrawals. They demanded more locations, and Fuzzy's obliged. Spreading throughout 11 states with 60 stores and many more to come, Fuzzy's is taking over stomachs and states alike.

It's no wonder. Critics have described Fuzzy's food as "a thing of great beauty," and "truly amazing," while even calling the franchise itself a "phenomenon."

A phenomenon? That's a pretty big word. And we'll happily take it. And no matter how far and wide this tasty little phenomenon spreads, every location will always keep the Fuzzy's promise in mind: To focus full attention on promptly and efficiently providing guests with generous helpings of uniquely flavorful foods at a fair price.
