LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The surging UNLV women's tennis team earned at least a share of the Mountain West divisional regular-season championship by downing Fresno State 4-1 on a hot and sunny Senior Day Sunday at the Fertitta Tennis Complex.

The Rebels snapped the Bulldogs' 19-match MW regular-season win streak and improved their record to 16-7 overall and 5-1 in the league while the Bulldogs fell to 13-8 overall and 2-1 in the conference.

UNLV forged a 1-0 lead by taking the two completed doubles matches. Aiwen Zhu and En-Pei Huang beat Jana Buth and Paola Diaz de Regules 6-3 at the top of the lineup while Paola Artiga and Anna Bogoslavets earned their team-leading 17th doubles victory of the season by beating Olivia Noble and Katerina Stloukalova 6-4 at the third position.

In singles play, UNLV won three matches to secure the win. Fresno State started to rally at the top of the lineup where Katerina Stloukalova downed Carol Zi Yang 6-3, 6-2. However, that would be the lone point scored for the Bulldogs as the Rebels dominated the rest of the completed singles matches. Bogoslavets defeated Triebe 6-4, 6-1 at No. 3; Artiga won by retirement over Lawson 6-3, 4-0 and Jovana Kenic ended things by knocking off Ndindi Ndunda 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 on court six. UNLV also won the first set on the two matches that were halted.

 

 

Before the match, the team's two seniors, Yang and Artiga, were honored on the court as the match was the final regular-season home date.

UNLV will now await seeding for the 2017 Mountain West Women's Tennis Championship, which starts Thursday, April 27 at the Fertitta Tennis Complex.
