ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Ole Miss women’s tennis junior Caroline Rohde-Moe captured the Michigan Invitational singles title Sunday, going undefeated in all three of her matches at No. 1 singles on the weekend to lead a successful start to the spring for the Rebels.  The Rebels won a total of 12 singles matches on the weekend, including five on Sunday.  

Rohde-Moe earned a total of 24 points in singles.  Sunday, Rohde-Moe, ranked No. 30 in the nation, defeated No. 35 Katie Vasenina of South Florida 6-2, 6-3.  In her first match, Rohde-Moe topped Michigan’s Emina Bektas, who finished last year ranked inside the top 15.   Saturday, Rohde-Moe downed 39th-ranked Elizabeth Kilborn of Georgia Tech 6-3, 6-3.   With her three wins this weekend, Rohde-Moe improved to 14-6 on the year.  

Another highlight for the Rebels this weekend was the play of freshman Mai El Kamash who has only been here for two weeks.  The Cairo, Egypt native won all three of her matches in straight sets, including two ranked wins.  El Kamash wrapped her successful debut with a 6-2, 6-3 win over 75th-ranked Loreto Alonso (USF).

In addition to Rohde-Moe and El Kamash, sophomores Erin Stephens and Santa Shumilina won on Sunday as well as freshman Marija Mliutinovic.

“It was a great weekend for us in singles. I was very impressed with our level of play,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We were able to find out a lot about our team and improve from the beginning to the end of the tournament.  It also showed that we have a lot of work to do in doubles.  We competed hard in doubles and had some opportunities, but we weren’t able to convert.  It was a great start to the spring.”

The Rebels will continue on the road as they head to Williamsburg, Va., for their dual match opener against William & Mary Tuesday at 5 p.m.
