AUSTIN — Miriam Rosell Canudas advanced to the championship match of the singles flight two draw to lead UTSA at last weekend's Longhorns Invitational.

The freshman from Barcelona, Spain, and reigning Conference USA Player of the Month opened the tournament on Friday with a 6-2, 6-2 victory against Rice's Jane Stewart. She then defeated McNeese State's Sara Castellano in three sets (4-6, 6-4, 6-2) and Texas' Lana Groenvynck in straight sets (6-2, 6-2) the following day to advance to Sunday's final. Rosell Canudas took the first set from Wichita State's Satjaporn Mahajaroenkul but dropped the next two by scores of 6-3 and 6-4 to fall short of her first career title.

The three-day event ended the Roadrunners' fall season and they will be back in action for dual-match play in late January.
