Texas A&M Women’s Tennis Triumphs Over Miami, Eyes ITA National Championships…

The 9th-ranked Texas A&M women’s tennis team emerged victorious against the Miami Hurricanes with a 4-3 win on Friday at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center. Coach Mark Weaver expressed the challenging nature of the match, stating,

“Today was definitely one of those tough moments. Beating a strong opponent on their home courts is always a great challenge. Although we had control with our rackets, we couldn’t secure the win today.”

Looking ahead, the Aggies are set to travel to Seattle for the ITA National Team Indoor Championships, taking place from February 9 to 12, 2024, at the Nordstrom Tennis Center.

Despite Miami initially taking the lead on Court 3, the Aggies made a comeback on Court 2, as Nicole Khirin and Lucciana Perez defeated Antonia Balzert and Leonie Schuknecht. The No. 3 duo, Mary Stoiana and Mia Kupres, extended the lead by securing a victory over Xinyi Nong and Isabella Pfennig.

In the singles matches, Kupres dominated Antonia Balzert (6-0, 6-1), doubling the Aggies’ lead. Miami narrowed the gap on Courts 5 and 6. With the remaining three courts all heading into a third set, Perez secured a win on Court 4 against Leonie Schuknecht (3-6, 6-1, 7-5). However, Miami managed to regain control on Courts 1 and 2, ultimately winning the match with a score of 4-3.
