LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The New Mexico State women’s tennis team improved to 2-4 in spring play after defeating Lamar, 6-1, Friday at the NM State Tennis Center. 

The Aggies won all three doubles matches and five of the six singles matches, only losing at the No. 6 singles spot.

NM State’s closest doubles match was at No. 1 where juniors Denise Van Der Ben and Susana Alcaraz defeated Lamar’s Carolina Maso and Alicia Porte 8-6.  The Aggie duo of freshman Brittany Collens and senior Ros-Polly Nguyen won 8-3 as did sophomore Ashvarya Shrivastava and senior Annemieke Witte.

“We got off to a great start winning all three doubles,” Aggie head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We played with a lot of energy going into the singles.”

In singles, Nguyen picked up her first victory at the No. 1 spot for NM State.  Nguyen and Cardinal Dariva Dashutina were tied a set a piece and 2-2 in the deciding set when Dashutina had to retire due to injury. 

Alcaraz, Van Der Ben, Shrivastava and Witte all won in straight sets at the 2-5 spots.  Witte has won four matches in a row while Alcaraz extended her streak to three-consecutive wins.

The Aggies will now play the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks on Sunday, Feb. 16, beginning at 10 a.m. at the NM State Tennis Center.

“Lamar played us extremely tough and this match could have gone either way,” Fernandez said. “We have another tough match on Sunday versus Northern Arizona.  If we keep fighting this hard every single match, the results will take care of themselves.”
