Transcript 0EUCES ARE WILD The UH tennis team battles hard despite a hard-hitting injury bug By Christian Schmidt The UH womens tennis team finished with a 7-16 record after winning three of their last four matches to end in fifth place at the Conference USA tournament. But the biggest story of the season was injuries. Every player on the team missed action at some point. Junior Sarah Borwell fought off a back injury that forced her to miss one match. Sophomore Annie Rapp played through a stress fracture in her lower leg. Sophomore Karine Urbin had bouts of food poisoning and a chronically sore elbow. Junior Kailey Meisinger sat out a week with a sore ankle. Sophomore Jen Baccarani played through minor injuries, and freshman Sarah Flood had leg trouble early on. Junior Joanne Keene missed one month of the spring season coming off shoulder surgery. Borwell became the teams star player after redshirting last year with a serious back injury. Borwell began the spring by ripping off 10 consecutive wins, finishing at 17-5. Borwells strong all-court play keyed the Cougars' attack all year. The Cougars finished the spring with their best showing of the year, winning three of their four matches at the C-USA championships, with Baccaranis play anchoring the team. Serving notice Junior Sarah Borwell was the top player for the Lady Cougars despite back troubles. Borwell, who finished with a 17-5 individual record, was the No. 49 player in the nation and eight-best in the region. Photo by Pin Lim on academics and my tennis was suffering." The 5-10 right-hander plays with an aggressive style and uses her powerful serve to control matches. In three matches in a round-robin at Marquette, Feb. 23-25, Borwell averaged 25 aces per match. "I have a good all-court game. I can serve and volley or stay back," she said. "I like to keep attacking. "I do need to improve my concentration; I tend to lose focus sometimes," Borwell said. "I hope to continue to improve." Borwell first played tennis when her father signed her up for lessons after a new tennis club opened near her house. Borwell was a top-10-ranked juniors player in England before com ing to the United States. She is also a tremendous doubles player, teaming with partner sophomore Annie Rapp to form a nationally ranked doubles team. The two work well together, using Borwell's powerful serves and Rapp's strong ground strokes to defeat their opponents. "Annie loves to attack. It's joyful to play with her. We have a good rela tionship on and off the court," Borwell said. "All my teammates are great. Even Floody (freshman Sarah Flood), though she's always asking me questions." Borwell hopes to turn pro in the next year or two if things continue to go as well as they have lately. — Christian Schmidt Tennis 249
