Texans sweep Seattle in season finale to clinch winning season

TSU Sports Information

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — Tarleton's inaugural NCAA Division I Tennis season ended on a high note Saturday morning as the Texans swept Seattle University 7-0 and clinched a winning record (11-10).

Women's Tennis is the fourth program — football, volleyball, men's basketball — to finish with an overall record at .500 or higher. Tarleton is in its first transition season as a member of the Western Athletic Conference.

The Texans will now await the results from Grand Canyon's final two matches. Tarleton has already secured at least a second-place finish in the WAC standings. If GCU loses a match this weekend, the Texans can clinch at least a share of the WAC regular season championship.

"Today was a great match from all of our girls," said head coach Elianne Miron. "We got to send Mihaela (Codreanu) off with a well-deserved 7-0 sweep. I can't say enough about her and her leadership this season. After losing her senior year to COVID, she had something to prove. She came in a proved how great of a tennis player and leader she is. I'm very proud. We ended on a great note and I look forward to continuing to build this program."
