Roadrunners blank Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Wednesday, 4-0
SAN ANTONIO — UTSA cruised to its second home win in as many days with a 4-0 victory against former Southland Conference foe Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Wednesday.
The Roadrunners (7-7) jumped on top of the Islanders (6-3) early by winning the first two doubles matches.
Jacobea Junger and Miriam Rosell Canudas rolled to their eighth consecutive victory on the first court with an 8-3 triumph against Kerry Galhos and Stefania Nicolae. The pair improved to 9-1 this season.
Lina Hallgren and Isabelle Jonsson then clinched the opening point with an 8-6 victory against Maider Martin and Celia Rodriguez Delgado at the No. 3 spot in the lineup.
It was all UTSA in singles play.
Rosell Canudas continued her winning ways at the No. 2 position with a quick 6-1, 6-1 win against Martin. The triumph extended her winning streak to a half dozen matches and she now owns a team-leading 11-3 record this spring.
Jonsson got past Rodriguez Delgado at the third slot in straight sets (6-1, 6-2) and Nicole Karaklis clinched the Roadrunners' fourth win in their last six outings with a 6-2, 6-4 triumph at the No. 4 position against Sandra Burges. The match was called with the Birds leading on two of the other three courts.
UTSA's busy week continues on Friday when it hosts Division II No. 46 St. Edward's (4-5). The final contest of the Roadrunners' current three-match home stand is scheduled for 11 a.m. and they will be looking to go over .500 for the first time this spring.
