    It's been two years since 37-year-old Leilani Carrillo suffered a devastating blow after five of her family members were killed in an apparent murder-suicide on the south side. Now, she wants to use this tragedy as a way to spread awareness about the seriousness of mental health.

 TUCSON, Ariz. – Sophomore Lauren Marker and junior Briar Preston were named on the ITA singles top-125 on Tuesday. Marker is now ranked 96th and Preston is ranked 113th.

Marker is coming off a very good weekend as she earned two singles victories in dominant fashion. On Friday against Nevada, she defeated Sheila Morales 6-3, 6-0 and defeated then 51st ranked Alina Soltanici from Sacramento State 6-0, 6-2 on Sunday. Including the fall, Marker owns a record of 8-3. In the spring, she is 3-0 in singles matches while playing at the number one spot in the lineup. The sophomore has also won five straight matches, which is the longest active streak of any Wildcat and has defeated two nationally ranked opponents.

Preston also had a successful weekend. She beat Nevada's Juliette Legendre in straight sets 6-2, 6-1 on Friday and Sacramento State's Anna-Maria Nau in straight sets as well 6-1, 6-1. Preston has a record of 6-2 this year with a 3-0 record at the number two spot in the spring season. The junior transfer has won four straight matches and will look to continue that success.

The Wildcats are back in action on Friday, Feb. 13 against No. 65 BYU at 1:30 p.m. MST at LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.
