BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — UTSA blanked UAB on Sunday for its third victory in its last four outings, all of which have been shutouts.

The Roadrunners (4-5) picked up the doubles point following wins at the Nos. 1 and 3 positions in the lineup.

After Lina Hallgren and Isabelle Jonsson downed Paula Castro and Pardis Kianoush, 8-5, on the third court, Jacobea Junger and Miriam Rosell Canudas stretched their winning streak at the top spot to four matches with an 8-5 victory against Rachel Daniell and Elaine Simon.

The Blazers (2-4) were unable to get on track in singles play, as UTSA won four of the six contests in straight sets.

Junger topped Daniell at the No. 1 slot by scores of 6-4, 6-2 for her fourth consecutive triumph, while Isabelle Jonsson defeated Kianoush at the No. 3 position (6-4, 6-2), Nicole Karaklis won on the fourth court against Catherine Ragon (6-4, 7-5) and Hallgren got past Castro at the fifth spot (6-2, 6-4).

UTSA's other triumphs came at the sixth position when Irene Gandara Gonzalez defeated Simon in three sets (6-3, 5-7, 10-3) and on the second court when Rosell Canudas got past Amy Lowther when Lowther retired in the third set.
