Injury setbacks HURT KJne might not want to risk the deep waters of theSWCinwomen'stenniswitlioutafullcomplt^ ment of strong players. But when Head Coach Cathy Beene put together this years team, injuries took away some of her best players. "I'm not even making excuses. We had three of our top six out this year with injuries. That just killed us," she said. "You can't compete in this conference let alone in the nationally level. With the strength of schedule we had and having your number one, three and six players out, it made for a very long year for us. "We have a very cred- ibleprogramnationally We have always been somewhere between 20 and thirty nationally," said Beene. "This year looksbad,butwhenyou look at a record book £T jflj you don't see that you had three of your players out." With perennial powerhouses like Texas, Texas A&M and TCU, it's tough to win in this conference, but the Cougars can still compete. "We'll always have a tough time with Texas and A&M. A tough conference makes everybody equal. It justdependson whodoesn't have injuries that year," she said. One person who wasn't injured was senior Patricia Riddell. She played well and succeeded academically as well. 'Trish had a pretty good year. She was very good in both singles and doubles. She had some very good wins against some nationally ranked players," Beene said. "She was hindered in doubles play when our number one, the other girl who played doubles with her in the Fall, had a shoulder injury." Adecision to team her with sophomore Cecilia Piedrahita was made and some positive young tennis team results were made. "We had to flip her partner and put Cecilia with her. To their cnx\ it, in a twt) a nd ahali month period, they nearly made the NCAA Tournament. They had a great record, but they were just short on numbers becauseof a lackol time," said Beene. Riddell also made points in the c lass room. She's made the dean's lisl every year she has attended UI I. This year she also won the NCAA Woman of the Year Award for the Uni- versityoll louston.ThelcKalawaaihonorsboth academic and athletic achievements ,uk\ also nominates her far a na tional Woman of the Year Award. Riddell is nationally ranked (number 74 out of 100 NCAA players) and with Piedrahita, their doubles team went 12-5 this season. "Cecilia was a Sophomore and made tremendous strides this year in her game. She also had some very good wins nationally as well as in our region," Beene said. "She had an outside shot at the NCAA's, but she had a couple of bad losses at the end of the season that hurt her." The team participated in several difficult matches with top ranked teams all over the country and although the team lost more than it won, several individual performances kx)ked good. "We had a pretty good fall when we had our whole team here. At the North Carolina State Tournament we played pretty well," said Beene. "We won the doubles. Trish finished third in her bracket." "We've got a ^xkI program ^nd h had for a long time. We're probably going to be tough again in two years," she said. We'll be good next year, young, but we'll be good."-Michael Edwards photo by Gilbert Sifuentes her 140 Sports Tennis 141
