BATON ROUGE, La. - The No. 17 nationally ranked Ole Miss women's tennis concluded a successful road trip with a 6-1 win over 35th-ranked LSU here Sunday at the Dub Robinson Tennis Stadium.  With the win, the Rebels wrap up a 2-0 weekend and improve to 13-7 overall, 5-3 in the SEC.

The Rebels took the early 1-0 lead by winning at No. 1 and 2 doubles.  LSU came out battling in singles, but Ole Miss was able to win in straight sets at No. 1 and hold off the Tigers in three sets at four and five to clinch the victory.

"We played well in doubles and then won some huge three-setters in singles.  I am proud of the girls for stepping up, because LSU pushed at a lot of positions," head coach Mark Beyers said.  "It's great to go on the road and pick up two wins against two good teams.  Now we turn our attention to a big match against Vanderbilt on Friday."

The senior duo of Kristi Boxx and Abby Guthrie, ranked No. 6 in the country, improved to 16-2 at No. 1 doubles, 7-1 in the SEC with an 8-4 win.  Gabby Rangel and Erin Stephens clinched the point winning 8-5 at No. 2 doubles.

Boxx, ranked No. 12 nationally, downed LSU's Whitney Wolf 6-4, 6-2 at No. 1 singles to put the Rebels ahead 2-0 and move to 6-1 in the SEC.

All the remaining matches went three sets, and the Rebels won four of them.  Freshman Julia Jones rallied to beat Keri Frankenberger 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 at No. 4 to increase the lead to 3-0.  Moments later Guthrie finished off her comeback against Ebie Wilson at No. 5, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to clinch the victory. Jones is now 5-3 in the SEC, and Guthrie improved to 7-1.  

Stephens won her match against Tiger Kaitlin Burns 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 on court three, and sophomore Caroline Rhode-Moe defeated Olivia Howlett 5-7, 7-6(1), 1-0(5) on court two.

On Friday, the Rebels defeated Arkansas 6-1 and are now in sole possession of second place in the SEC West.  With Vanderbilt's loss to Georgia on Sunday, that match becomes even bigger as they are now tied with the Rebels for third in the overall standings.
