EDINBURG — UTSA finished off a perfect week with a 4-1 victory at Texas-Pan American on Sunday. The Roadrunners (8-7), who now have won three consecutive matches, climbed over the .500 mark for the first time this season.

UTSA, which had to endure a pair of one-hour rain delays, jumped on top after doubles play after winning at the Nos. 1 and 3 spots in the lineup.

Jacobea Junger and Miriam Rosell Canudas remained red hot on the first court with an 8-3 triumph against Christel Amsallem and Wanda Beguelin. The pair improved to 10-1 this spring with its ninth consecutive victory. Lina Hallgren and Isabelle Jonsson then clinched the opening point with their 8-5 win at the third position against Didi Fatchikova and Mariana Ranzahuer.

The Roadrunners came out on top following straight-sets triumphs at the top three singles spots.

Jonnson won her third consecutive outing at the third position with a 6-4, 6-0 victory against Katia Stavroulaki and Junger followed with a 6-1, 6-2 decision over Fatchikova on the first court for her fourth straight win.

After Reegan Greenwood downed Nicole Karaklis at the No. 4 slot by scores of 6-1, 6-1 to pull the Broncs (12-6) to within two, Rosell Canudas continued her winning ways with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Beguelin at the second spot in the lineup. Her seventh consecutive win pushed her team-leading record to 12-3 this season.

The remaining two singles matches were unfinished so the Birds could return to the Alamo City.

UTSA now will take a 13-day break before returning to action on March 29 against I-35 rival Texas State (7-6).
