HONOLULU, HI – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team improved to 2-0 on the season with a 6-1 win at the University of Hawaii Friday at the UH Tennis Complex.   With the win, the Rebels improved to 2-0 on the young season.

The Rainbow Wahine came into the match 1-1 with a win over Penn State and a close loss to No. 6 Baylor, so head coach Mark Beyers knew they were a solid team.

“Overall I thought we played a solid match today against a very good Hawaii team,” Beyers said.  “Obviously there are areas that we need to work and improve on, but this is a good start.  The fact that we are able to play at this level on Jan. 20th with only a handful of outdoor practices under our belt is very promising.”  

The Rebels went up 1-0 with a sweep of the doubles.  Caroline Rohde-Moe and Julia Jones dominated 8-2 at No. 3; Erin Stephens and Gabby Rangel downed their opponents 8-4 at No. 2, and Kristi Boxx and Abby Guthrie finished off an 8-5 win at No. 1.

In singles, Boxx gave Ole Miss a 2-0 lead with a 6-1, 6-3 win against Katarina Poljakova at No. 1.  Rohde-Moe made it 3-0 downing Jamie Pawid 6-2, 6-1 at No. 2.  

Hawaii got its only point when Xenia Suworowa defeated Rebel freshman Stephens 6-3, 6-2 on court four.  That was it for the Rainbows, as sophomore Vivian Vlaar finished off Kelsey Daguio 6-2, 6-4 at No. 6 singles.

Guthrie and Jones completed the scoring, winning at No. 3 and 5 singles, respectively.

The Rebels return home before heading to Tallahassee, Fla., next weekend for the ITA Kick-Off Weekend. They will face Texas A&M in the first round Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. CT.  

While the coaching staff is pleased with the opening trip, they also know that the competition heats up next weekend.

“We will need to continue to work hard this week to get ready for a very tough Texas A&M team,” Beyers said.
