HONOLULU, HI -- The Ole Miss women's tennis team kicked off the 2012 season Thursday by sweeping one of the top teams in Division II, Hawaii Pacific, 7-0 at the University of Hawaii Tennis Complex. The Rebels conclude the road trip with a match against the University of Hawaii Friday at 8 p.m. CT.
With the Sea Warriors only having five available players, the Rebels began the match with a win at No. 3 doubles by default. The senior duo of Kristi Boxx and Abby Guthrie then downed Zora Vickova and Celina Goetti at No. 1 to clinch the first point.
The Rebels also won the No. 6 singles match by default, giving them a 2-0 lead early. The freshmen clinched it for the team as Erin Stephens shut out Lea Kruse-Uttermann 6-0, 6-0 at No. 4 singles and Julia Jones dominated Dominque Bushong 6-0, 6-1 at No. 5.
Boxx downed Vickova 6-0, 6-2 on court one; Guthrie cruised to a 6-2, 6-0 win over Lelyzaveta Rybakova on court three, and sophomore Carolina Rohde-Moe defeated Goetti 6-4, 6-3 at the No. 2 spot to complete the sweep.
“We are very happy to get the first win of the season under our belt. Hawaii Pacific is obviously ranked No. 5 in Division II, and they have some talented players,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We played disciplined and we never gave an inch, especially in singles. Tomorrow will be a tougher test against a very good University of Hawaii team.”
Senior quarterback Bo Wallace, like his head coach, stepped into a program that had won just two games in 2011 and had lost 14 straight games. Three years later, Wallace helped lead the ninth-ranked Rebels to their first nine-win regular... read more
