It saw the Cougars win their first conference game in three years, the destruction of the old tennis courts, and they finished with a record of 6-14. The Cougars started the season without a home court due to the construction of the new athletic facility. They were forced to play their home games at Chancellors Raquet Club. It was there that the team started its first of three streaks of the season. It was a losing one. They hosted Northwest State to start the season and a three game losing streak. They travelled to Utah where they took on No. 17 Brigham Young on February 11, and faced Utah the next day. BYU beat UH 9-0, but Utah proved a little more friendly for the Cougars as the score was improved 5-4. It also foreshadowed what was to come. The Cougars returned home to host a six game homestand. It was here they started their six game winning streak, the longest since the 1990-1991 season where the Cougars won ten in a row. It started with a 9-0 victory against Sam Houston. There, the two seniors, No. 1 singles player Catherine Bromfield and No.2 Cecilia Piedrahita, led the way winning in straight sets. Bromfield won 6-1, 6-1 , and Piedrahita won 6-1, 6-0. The Cougars continued the streak by defeating North Texas, Nichols State, Southwest Texas, and Texas-San Antonio. Their next, and final home game in the stand, was the Southwest Conference opener against Texas Tech. The Cougars entered the SWC schedule with a record of 5-3. Houston had not won a conference game since April 15, 1991, when they defeated Rice 5-4. This year that drought ended. The Cougars defeated the Raiders 6-3 to start the SWC season with a record of 1-0. When the head coach Stina Mosvold was asked if the team was now where she wanted it to be, she said, "No, but it's already better than last year." The Cougars now entered the third and final streak of the season. It started when they had to face the defending national champions-Texas. It was there the Cougars started a losing streak that ended with the season. They dropped their next 11 games, a period marked by an extremely tough schedule, the SWC is one of the toughest conferences in the country, and the loss of their star Bromfield to a minor injury did not help. She hurt herself during the match against Oklahoma State and cost the Cougars two points during each match since the Cougars just have enough members to make up a team. She had fully recovered by the end of the season and was able to compete in the SWC Tennis Tournament which was held by Rice April 22-24. The Cougars were seeded eight in the conference with a 1- 6 SWC record. They drew Texas, who ranked No. 1 in the nation, in the first round. Houston was handily defeated 6-0 by a team that had already looked past the SWC match and set their sights on defending their NCAA title. Bromfield was the only player not to lose in straight sets. The best news about the hot-and-cold season is the fact that they broke the SWC losing streak and will only lose two players. Since this is Mosvold's first year and they are a young team, the future may take a turn for the better. The Cougars finished second in the conference as recently as 1990, and with the new courts and athletic facility, perhaps the team will continue to improve.-Daniel Scholl Tennis € 313
