SAN ANTONIO — Kavya Menon rallied from a one-set deficit to defeat Kayla Stevenson at No. 6 singles and UTSA edged Sam Houston State, 4-3, on Sunday at the UTSA Tennis Center.

Menon lost first frame, 6-3, but she came back to post 6-2, 6-4 victories in the final two panels to clinch the contest for the Roadrunners (5-5). The win also snapped her four-game losing streak in singles action.

The Birds also picked up wins at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 singles, while the Bearkats (4-6) won the doubles point and picked up two more tallies at fourth and fifth singles.

Jacobea Junger also rallied from a one-set deficit to knock off Sheridan Currie at the top singles spot (2-6, 6-3, 6-4), while Isabelle Jonsson and Alena Shichkova both netted straight-sets victories.
