The Cougars finished the regular season a week ago with a doubleheader win against Prairie View A&M. They won both matches in a sweep, 4-0. Houston finished the season with a 19-3 overall record and an undefeated home record at 14-0. The undefeated home record matched their best mark since the 2006 season.
Throughout the season the Cougars racked up a number of dominating performances. Early in the season the Cougars beat Nevada and Arizona in a series of road matches. They battled with powerhouse Rice midseason and were one match from winning, and in a span of three weeks, Houston went on a six-match winning streak. One of the wins in the streak included a home match against UConn, in which the Cougars won the match 5-2.
Sveva Mazzari headlined singles play throughout the spring season, finishing with an impressive 18-1 record. For doubles, Mazzari and Tsveta Dimitrova went 13-2, and Lauren Alter and Alison Mills posted a 13-3 record.
