OXFORD, Miss. – The No. 37 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team took two matches from Southern Miss Sunday at the Gillom Sports Center, winning both by a 4-0 score. With the wins, the Rebels have won five straight and improved to 10-9 overall.
After rain forced the matches indoors, the two teams decided to play singles first. Freshman Mai El Kamash, ranked No. 82 in the nation, downed Kate Lanier 6-1, 6-0 at No. 2 singles, Iris Verboven downed Elanor Grossman 6-2, 6-2 on court three, and then Erin Stephens, playing her first career match at No. 1 singles, defeated Alexus Coats 6-4, 6-0 to clinch the win.
The second match also began with singles, but this time with four, five and six. Vief Vlaar was first off the court, beating Emily Nettles 6-2, 6-0 at No. 6. Freshman Allie Robbins followed up with a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 5. Verboven took care of Mackenzie Oskin 6-2, 6-3 at No. 4 and then Santa Shumilina clinched it with a 6-1, 6-3 win at No. 3.
The Rebels, who downed Mississippi State on Friday for their 24th straight in the series, return to SEC play next weekend at No. 2 Florida and South Carolina.
