CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The No. 23 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team served for the doubles point, but No. 15 Clemson rallied to win it and used that momentum to close out a 4-0 shutout in consolation play of the ITA National Team Indoor Championships here Saturday at the Boar’s Head Sports Club.
The Rebels (4-3) played a solid match against No. 3 Duke in the opening round of the National Team Indoor and nearly upset the Blue Devils. Head coach Mark Beyers was hoping for the same effort on Saturday.
Looking to snap a two-match losing streak, Ole Miss came out solid at No. 2 and 3 doubles. After Clemson won the No. 1 doubles match, the Rebel tandem of Gabby Rangel and Erin Stephens posted an 8-5 win at No. 2. Ole Miss’ Caroline Rohde-Moe and Julia Jones led 7-4 at No. 3 doubles and served for it at 7-5, but the Tiger tandem of Klara Vyskicilova and Monika Kochanova came back to win it 9-7 to clinch the point.
The Tigers jumped on the Rebels early in singles, winning five first sets. Rohde-Moe lost her first dual match of the season at No. 2 singles, falling to Clemson’s 65th-ranked Keri Wong 6-2, 6-1. Senior Abby Guthrie fell to Tiger Romy Koelzer 6-4, 6-3 at No. 5 singles and then Clemson’s Vyskicilova finished off Stephens 6-2, 6-3 at No. 3 singles to clinch the win.
