Seward Tennis Standout Signs at UTEP

Brock Kappelmann - July 22, 2019 6:44 am

Seward’s Maria Aveiga was very successful in both of her years as a Saint. As a Freshman, Aveiga was Region VI champion in both singles and doubles at the #2 spot. She also grabbed a 5th place finish at the #2 singles spot in the NJCAA National Tournament. She finished her Freshman year with a 10-6 record in singles and a 14-5 record in singles. As a sophomore, Aveiga racked up even more accolades by going 21-11 in singles and 20-7 in doubles. In the Fall, she finished 8th at the ITA National Tournament in singles while also finishing 5th at the same tournament in doubles. Aveiga and her partner Patricia Panta, were the first pair of Lady Saints to make an appearance at the ITA National Tournament. Aveiga kept it rolling in the spring by racking up two more Region VI titles at the #2 singles spot and the #1 doubles spot. She continued to finish 3rd place at the NJCAA National Tourney in those spots. Aveiga finished her Saint career with a combined record of 31-17 in singles and 34-12 in doubles.

Aveiga will join a UTEP team that plays in a tough Conference USA. The Miners went 7-14 last year and will be looking to up their win count by adding Aveiga to the squad.
