TUCSON, Ariz. — UTSA opened its fall campaign with a total of 28 victories (17 singles/11 doubles) at last weekend's Wildcats Invitational.

Miriam Rosell Canudas had a solid first tournament as a Roadrunner, as she advanced to Sunday's Wildcat Flight championship final where she lost to Arizona's Akilah James in three sets (6-3, 6-7, 6-3). The freshman from Barcelona, Spain, advanced to the championship match with a pair of victories on Friday and one more the following day. She also teamed up with Isabelle Jonsson for two doubles wins during the weekend.

Irene Gandara Gonzalez also played in a championship match on the final day. The junior from Cordoba, Spain, dropped a 6-1, 6-0 decision to Arizona's Lauren Marker in the Crimson Flight final. She, too, won her first two contests on the opening day and another on Saturday to move on. Gandara Gonzalez added a pair of wins in double play with Nicole Karaklis.

Meanwhile, Jacobea Junger picked up three singles victories, including a 6-1, 6-2 triumph against Mickey Hsu of Cal State Northridge in a Wildcat Flight Consolation final. She and Daniela Garcia-Diaz combined for three doubles victories en route to winning a Wildcat Consolation Flight final against the Northern Arizona duo of Jordan Denesik and Tatum Rochin (8-5).

UTSA will be back in action later this week at the ITA Texas Regional Championships. The four-day tournament is scheduled to begin on Thursday in Fort Worth.
