COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Coming off a loss at No. 2 Florida, the No. 37 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team had another tough away match this weekend against No. 29 South Carolina Sunday at the Carolina Tennis Center, dropping the match 4-0.
Ole Miss started slowly for the second consecutive match as the Gamecocks took the doubles point with wins at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles. The Rebels were up 5-2 at court three, but ended up losing the match 8-6 after South Carolina had won 8-1 at No. 1. The No. 2 doubles match was in a tiebreaker when play stopped, but the Rebels led it 7-3 at one time.
In singles, South Carolina took five of six first sets with Ole Miss’ Iris Verboven taking the first set 7-5 at No. 6 singles. The Gamecocks were able to win matches at courts one, three and five to complete the win.
“This was a disappointing result,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We had a big lead in two of the doubles matches but couldn’t close them out. We fell behind in a lot of the singles matches. On three of the courts we did a fantastic job of turning the match around.”
Ole Miss fell to 10-11 overall and 4-7 in the SEC, while South Carolina rose to 13-8 overall and 6-5 in the SEC.
The Rebels will play a doubleheader at Tennessee State followed by a match against Lipscomb on Tuesday in Nashville before returning home to close out the regular season against Missouri and Texas A&M.
