ARLINGTON, TEXAS...The University of Texas at Arlington's women's tennis team improved its Southland Conference regular season winning streak to 42 consecutive matches with a 5-1 victory over Stephen F. Austin Saturday at the UTA Tennis Center in Arlington. The victory improved the Mavericks' 2003 record to 3-4 overall and 2-0 in Southland matches.

UTA was again missing a player in its lineup, so the Mavericks were forced to forfeit matches at No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles. However, the Mavericks won the rest of the matches that were completed.

The morning started with a pair of doubles victories, giving UTA the doubles point and a 1-0 lead. Annemarie Lenze and Anete Rozkalne teamed to defeat Robin Houston and Gennan Houston 8-1 in the top spot, and Ella Goldshuv and Jitka Vetrovcova topped Melissa Bass and Sandra Wolfe 8-2 at No. 2 doubles. Stephen F. Austin's Christine Huynh and Emily Voss won their match by default.

In singles action, the Mavericks won matches in each of the top four spots in straight sets. Lenze defeated Robin Houston 6-1, 6-3 in the top slot and Rozkalne defeated Gennan Houston by an identical score in the No. 2 position. Ella Goldshuv easily defeated SFA's Voss 6-1, 6-1, while Vetrovcova beat Wolfe 6-2, 6-2. With the team outcome already decided, the teams decided to end the match between Huynh and UTA's Gretel Hach before its conclusion. Hach was leading 6-4, 2-1 when the match was called. Stephen F. Austin won the No. 6 singles point as the Ladyjacks' Megan Langston had no UTA opponent.

UTA has not lost a regular season match in Southland Conference play since the turn of the century. The last time the Mavericks lost a conference match during the regular season came April 10, 1998, when Texas-San Antonio defeated UTA 7-2 in the final regular season match of the 1998 season.

UTA will return to action March 19 against Texas Tech at 11 a.m. on March 19 at the UTA Tennis Center.
