The ULM tennis program kept up its successful season when they knocked off No. 40 Tulane in a close 4-3 victory. The Warhawks were lead by senior Petra Horakova who clinched the final match and victory for the team.

Horakova remains unbeaten in all of the singles matches she has competed in this season and looks to keep her streak of wins in doubles with teammate Stefana Andrei.

On Saturday, Horakova and Andrei beat the 76th ranked doubles team of Karagoz and Muller from Tulane by a score of 6-4.

In singles, Andrei opened up the match for ULM with a 6-0 and 6-3 win, which put the Warhawks on the scoreboard.

Tulane, however, would quickly respond and go up 2-1 with two victories by their top players in Sade Atkinson and Ivone Alvaro.

For the Warhawks to come out victorious, they would have to run the table and win two straight matches before the Green Wave won one singles match.

Luckily for ULM, the last two players left for the Warhawks were Horakova and talented freshman Madalina Grigoriu.

For Grigoriu, she was able to shut down her opponent, winning both sets by a score of 6-2. Meanwhile, Horakova made it close until the end and won by a score of 6-4 and 7-5.

The Warhawks’ win over the nationally-ranked Green Wave moves them to seven straight wins on the season and a record of 8-1 overall with a 1-0 record in the Sun Belt conference.

Saturday was ULM’s 20th meeting with Tulane, and the Warhawks improved their record over the Green Wave to 12-8 overall now.

The Warhawks will now travel to Jonesboro-Arkansas for their second Sun Belt conference match of the season. Their first serve is set for Friday at 10 a.m. and will be against Texas State.
