BATON ROUGE, La. - The Ole Miss women's tennis team finished off a successful weekend with a 4-1 win at LSU Sunday at the Dub Robinson Tennis Stadium. Coupled with Friday's 4-2 win at Arkansas, the Rebels improved to 10-5 overall and 4-4 in the SEC.

Rain delayed the start of the match to 1 p.m., but it did not delay the Rebels play. Electing to begin the match with singles due to weather concerns, the Rebels won all six first sets.  Two quick wins from Caroline Rohde-Moe and Julia Jones at two and three put Ole Miss ahead 2-0.  Rohde-Moe defeated Noel Scott 6-1, 6-3 and Jones downed Abigail Owens 6-0, 6-2 for her 20th win of the year.  

LSU managed to get on the board when 69th-ranked Joana Vale Costa came back to beat SEC Freshman of the Week, Zalina Khairudinova 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 at No. 1 singles.  

That would be it on the day for LSU, as Ole Miss finished off the Tigers at four and five singles for the victory.  Mai El Kamash won a huge first set tiebreaker 7-6(4) versus Gabrielle Otero and then got the second 6-4 to make it 3-1.  Moments later Erin Stephens capped it off with a 6-4, 6-4 win against Ella Taylor.

"We are very proud of the girls for beating two good teams on the road, and dealing with the travel," head coach Mark Beyers said. "To get a sweep is impressive. The match got pushed back because of weather and then we had to play singles first. The girls didn't let it bother them, winning all first sets.  Caro and Julia won quick.  Mai and Erin played great, and even Iris was up a set.  It's great to see the middle of the lineup playing so well for us right now, but everybody is contributing."

The Rebels, winners of three in a row, will be back in action March 30, at arch-rival Mississippi State.  

"We are excited to be 4-4 in the SEC, and looking forward to another great match next weekend," Beyers said. "Mississippi State looks to have their best team in years, and so it will be tough road match."
