2011-12: After dropping the first five matches of her freshman campaign, Uriarte won four in a row playing in the No. 4 spot - and all four were dominant performances. She defeated Gonzaga, 6-0, 7-5, Lewis-Clark State, 6-1, 6-0, Portland State, 6-3, 6-0, and Portland, 6-0, 6-3. Finishing the year with an 8-11 singles record, Uriarte recorded the second-most wins of anyone on the team. She was 4-4 in Big Sky Conference play, which included back-to-back wins in the final two matches of the year against Montana and Montana State. Playing in the No. 3 spot, she beat Montana's Ashley Mackey on her home court, 7-6 (4), 6-3, and a day later, earned another road victory over MSU's Wena Tsan, 6-4, 7-6 (5). She teamed up with fellow freshman Moira Hedberg in doubles, earning four wins throughout the year - two against Seattle and another two against Big Sky foes Portland State and Idaho State.

High School: Uriarte was ranked in the top 100 on for four-consecutive years, and in 2007 and 2008, she was ranked among the top 50. She achieved her highest juniors ranking of 44 in 2007 after garnering multiple wins at some of the most competitive tournaments in the country, including the Copper Bowl, the Easter Bowl Spring National, the Junior Orange Bowl International Championships and the USTA National Open Championships. Uriarte is a native of Las Vegas, Nev., and competed one season at Coronado High School before transferring to the Advantage Tennis Academy in Irvine, Calif., for her sophomore year. Uriarte saw early success at the ATA, including a sixth-place finish in the 18 and younger division at the 2008 Snowball Intermountain Sectional Tournament. Unfortunately, the rest of her season was hampered after she came down with an illness. Uriarte then  returned to Nevada and began competing again for Coronado during her senior year. She finished third overall at the 2010 Class 4A State Championships.
