The Mean Green tennis team traveled down to Fort Worth Wednesday and defeated the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs 4-3.

The win marks the second win in a row against TCU after the Horned Frogs held a 35-0 head-to-head record before last season.

In singles, the Mean Green fell behind early with losses by junior Kseniya Bardabush (6-3, 6-3), freshman Anastasiya Shestakova (6-3, 6-2), and freshman Kamilla Galieva (6-2, 6-4). UNT then hit stride in the fourth match when sophomore Agustina Valenzuela held off Horned Frogs’ Sofiko Kadzhaya in a three-set tiebreaker (1-6, 6-3, 7-5).

Mean Green freshman Alexis Thoma won (6-2, 6-3), and freshman Ana Sofia Cordero finished off singles by posting a shutout win (6-0, 6-0).

In doubles, Mean Green’s Bardabush and Shestakova fell in the first match (5-7), but then Thoma and Galieva got a close win (8-7).

The Mean Green then clinched its second victory against a Big 12 opponent this season when Valenzuela and sophomore Dane Joubert earned a shutout win (8-0).

Next up, the Mean Green will host the University of Louisville Cardinals at 3 p.m. on March 7.
