Outlook: Senior Paty Aburto is back for her fourth season in the purple and white. A fiesty player, she is in position to play one of the top spots for the Frogs this season. After teaming with Rosa Perez for two seasons on the doubles courts, Aburto will have to get used to a new partner in junior Karla Mancinas. Fall 2003: Aburto started the fall season ranked 70th in the Preseason ITA singles tally. She competed in the adidas Invitational where she topped No. 79 Shana McElroy of Wisconsin (6-1, 6-4) and upset 42nd-ranked Jessica Rush of Northwestern in three sets (2-6, 6-4, 6-0). Aburto also took part in the Omni Hotels Southwest Regional in October to finish the fall with a 4-3 singles mark. She tied for 19th in the Southwest Region rankings. Aburto and partner Mancinas posted a 3-2 doubles record during fall action. The duo picked up wins in both the adidas Invitational and Omni Hotels Southwest Regional en route to a No. 10 regional fall ranking. 2002-03: Ranked 72nd in the preseason, Aburto had to step up her game during the fall as she participated in the Riviera Qualifying tournament. Teamed with senior Rosa Perez in doubles, the pair advanced to the consolation semifinals at the Riviera, falling to Juric and Sevcikova of Missouri, 8-2. The tandem began the fall ranked No. 16 nationally, and finished the individual season third in the Southwest region and 30th nationally. During the spring, Aburto claimed singles wins against a pair of ranked opponents in No. 15 Julie Smekodub of Tulane (6-2, 4-6, 3-0, retire) and No. 45 Vida Mulec of Baylor (6-3, 6-2). Her good play at the first singles spot kept her ranked on the national scene throughout the spring, rising as high as 72nd in the March 12 poll. Aburto and Perez upset 30th-ranked Durska and Pillay of Tulsa, 8-3, on March 28 en route to a 14-4 spring mark. Aburto earned her second Conference USA Player of the Week honors for the week ending February 3, then went on to claim first-team All-C-USA for the second year. Along with Perez, the tandem was named Outstanding Doubles Team of the C-USA Championship to finish the season. 2001-02: Aburto put together another solid Frog year as she tallied a 24-12 singles mark that included a 12-7 record at No. 1 singles and a 4-1 tally at No. 2. During the fall, Aburto advanced to the round of 16 at the Omni Hotels Southwest Championships where she lost to Sarah Borwell of Houston, who won the tournament. Twelve of Aburto’s spring victories came in straight sets. Against ranked opponents, Aburto posted a 4-3 record, including winning a three-set thriller over 29th-ranked Katja Kovac of Baylor on Feb. 12. Aburto finished the year ranked 106th in the ITA national poll, and 10th in the Southwest Region. Teamed with junior Rosa Perez, Aburto was half of a formidable doubles team. The duo posted a solid .794 winning percentage which was best on the team. The pair won the Flight A Doubles championships at the C-USA Individual Championships in November. From Feb. 15 until March 8, the duo won 11 consecutive matches. Their most impressive win of the spring came as they defeated 10th-ranked Faltynkova and Kolodynska of Oklahoma State, 8-2, on March 26. Perez and Aburto were ranked in the national polls all spring, and finished the season ranked 28th nationally and fourth in the regional poll. She earned Conference USA Player of the Week honors for the week of February 18 following her upset win against then-No. 29 Katja Kovac of Baylor. Aburto earned first-team All-Conference USA honors at the end of the season. Summer 2001: Aburto gained international experience as she spent the summer as a member of the Mexican national team that competed in the World University Games in Beijing, China. She played No. 1 for Mexico during the Games. 2000-01: One of two freshmen with breakout seasons for the Frogs, Aburto recorded a solid 27-4 singles mark and a 21-9 doubles record during her initial season. She teamed primarily with Leoni Weirich to play doubles, and the pair won 81% of their matches (17-4). She also paired with Brenna Shackelford (3-3), Karolina Roubickova (1-1) and Katrin Gaber (0-1).
