Neither the Bulls nor the lightning could stop New Mexico State from extending its winning streak to 13 matches Monday.
The No. 53 Aggies (13-1) swept the doubles matches and claimed the first sets in four of the six singles when the threat of lightning suspended play. The Bulls couldn’t muster up any momentum during the break, and the Aggies held serve to win the match 5-2.
The Bulls (5-11) mounted victories at No. 4 and No. 6 singles. Senior Ashlee Callahan rebounded from a second-set setback to defeat NMSU’s Lejla Porobic 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 at No. 4. USF redshirt freshman Patricia Kolendo had little trouble gaining a point at No. 6, trouncing the Aggies’ Caroline Blechschmidt 6-1, 6-3.
