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.
The Tigers were battling on courts three and five when Jones made sure those matches would not be necessary for the Rebels as she finished off Mizzou’s Rachel Stuhlmann 6-2, 7-5 at No. 2 singles to clinch the 4-1 victory.
