OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team welcomed Southeastern Conference newcomer Missouri to the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center Friday afternoon and defeated the Tigers 4-1 behind the doubles point and singles wins at one, two and four.
With the win, the Rebels improved to 14-11 overall and 5-7 in the SEC. They will welcome another newcomer to the league, No. 3 ranked Texas A&M Sunday at Noon. Following that match, the Rebels will face Arkansas-Pine Bluff at 4 p.m.
The Rebels won four first sets in singles. Rohde-Moe closed out Cierra Gaytan-Leach 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1 singles to give the Rebels a 2-0 lead. Erin Stephens followed up with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Elisha Gabb at No. 4 to put Ole Miss ahead 3-0 and improve to 7-2 in the SEC.
Missouri’s Madison Rhyner defeated Rebel sophomore Iris Verboven 6-3, 6-0 on court six to give her team their only point on the day.
