TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Ole Miss women's tennis senior Kristi Boxx became the all-time doubles career wins leader Sunday afternoon in the No. 18 ranked Rebels' 5-2 loss at No. 25 Alabama at the UA Varsity Courts.

With the loss, the Rebels (8-5, 1-1) split the opening weekend of SEC play after Friday's 7-0 win at Auburn.

Ole Miss had chances to win the doubles point, but Alabama rallied and carried that momentum into singles play.  Boxx teamed up with fellow senior Abby Guthrie for a 9-8 win at No. 1 doubles, giving her 103 career wins, passing former three-time All-American Courtenay Chapman (102).

Alabama won at No. 2 doubles 8-3, and came back from a 5-3 deficit at three doubles to win it 8-6 clinching the point.   

The Crimson Tide won four first sets including at No. 6, where Rebel sophomore Vivian Vlaar dropped a 6-1, 6-3 decision to Taylor Lindsey.  

In a battle between two nationally ranked opponents at No. 2 singles, 61st-ranked Alexa Guarachi got the best of 63rd-ranked Caroline Rohde-Moe 6-1, 6-2 to put the Crimson Tide up 3-0.  

Boxx, ranked No. 22 in the nation, put the Rebels on the board and finished a 4-0 weekend in singles and doubles by topping 22nd-ranked Mary Anne Macfarlane 6-3, 6-3.  It marked the second straight win for Boxx against Macfarlane as she also defeated her last fall to win the ITA Southern Regional singles title.

The match ended when UA's Antonia Foehse finished off a hard-fought straight set win against Guthrie 7-6, 6-4 at No. 5 singles.  

"Alabama played well, but we had our opportunities," head coach Mark Beyers said.  "We were up 5-3, 30-0 serving at three doubles.  Also, Abby's first set tiebreaker was huge.  We need to capitalize on those situations to be able to beat a tough team like Alabama."

The final two matches went three sets, with Ole Miss freshman Julia Jones winning 6-2 in the third at four against Alex Clay, and the Crimson Tide's Courtney McLane winning 6-2 in the third against Erin Stephens at three.

The Rebels return home to host Tennessee and Georgia next weekend at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center/Galtney Courts.
