The Lady Indians’ 6-8 dual record is the best showing under third-year coach Mark Hathorn.

UT Dallas senior Andrea Hildago kept her singles record spotless in match play by knocking off UT Tyler’s #1 singles Connie Gleghorn in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1, in Saturday’s conference season finale (Apr. 10). Hildago teamed with Alexis McCubbin for a narrow 8-6 #1 doubles win to earn the second of four UTD points in a hard-fought 5-4 loss to the Patriots that knocked the women out of the ASC Championship Tournament. . . . UT Dallas men also dropped a match to UT Tyler to fall out of the conference postseason picture. No. 1 Kevin Durten picked up the only singles win for UTD.
