NEW ORLEANS, La. — UTSA ended its two-match losing streak in dramatic fashion on Thursday with a 4-3, come-from-behind victory at Tulane.

After falling into an early 3-0 hole against the Green Wave (4-19), the Roadrunners (11-9) began to rally when Irene Gandara Gonzalez outlasted Emily Dvorak in three sets on the sixth singles court (6-2, 0-6, 6-2).

UTSA then pulled to within a point following Isabelle Jonsson's straight sets win (7-6 [7-4], 6-0) at the No. 3 position against Jacqui Katz, which was the senior's 12th victory of the dual match campaign.

Lina Hallgren knotted things up at three following her 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5) triumph against Margaux Hyman at the No. 5 spot in the lineup and that meant the match would be decided on the fourth court, where Nicole Karaklis faced off with Meredith Maltby.

Maltby won the opening set, 6-4, but Karaklis rallied for a pair of 6-3 triumphs to clinch the victory for the Roadrunners.

UTSA will conclude its regular season on Sunday at No. 21 Rice (13-6). First serve is scheduled for 11 a.m.
