JACKSON, Miss. -- The Ole Miss men's tennis team traveled down to the capital city Tuesday, and picked up three wins against Jackson State.   The Rebels (8-9) return to SEC play this weekend, as they welcome arch-rival Mississippi State Sunday at 1 p.m.

William Kallberg did not make the trip to Jackson, while he continues to nurse an ankle injury.  In the first match, the teams started with doubles.  Johan Backstrom and Joe Rogers won 8-0 at No. 2, and then Stefan Lindmark and Zach Wilder won 8-2 at No. 3.

The Rebels earned straight set singles wins from Backstrom at No. 2, Nik Scholtz at No. 1 and Lindmark at No. 3 for the 4-0 victory.

For the second two matches, the Rebels and Tigers only played singles.  Lindmark sat out the second match, but the Rebels got wins from Scholtz at No. 1, Rogers at No. 6, Ricardo Jorge at No. 3 and Backstrom at No. 2 for the 4-0 victory.  

Scholtz vaulted up to No. 16 in the latest ITA Singles Rankings released Tuesday, after consecutive top-15 wins. He is now 9-0 overall and 4-0 in the SEC at No. 1 singles heading into the State match.

Scholtz sat out the final match of the day.  Vinod Gowda was first off the court at No. 4 followed by Jorge at No. 3, Backstrom at No. 1, Lindmark at No. 2 and Rogers within seconds at No. 6 for the final 5-0 score.

The Rebels return home to start gearing up for the big match on Sunday against the No. 17 ranked Bulldogs.  It's the Rebel Kid's Club party as well as Sundae Sunday.  Fans will enjoy free ice cream sundaes between doubles and singles.
