ARLINGTON, Texas...The University of Texas at Arlington won its 45th consecutive regular season Southland Conference women's tennis match Saturday, defeating Southeastern Louisiana 5-2 at the UTA Tennis Center in Arlington.

Annemarie Lenze and Anete Rozkalne defeated Inge LeGrange and Zdenka Puflerova 8-2 at No. 1 doubles and Ella Goldshuv and Jitka Vetrovcova defated SLU's Melanie Sanjuan and Justine Vosloo 8-3.

In singles matches, Lenze defeated Puflerova 6-2, 6-3 in the top position. SLU's LeGrange defeated Rozkalne in the second slot when Rozkalne had to stop the match due to illness.
