OXFORD, Miss.- It was a busy day at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center Sunday, with the No. 43 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team playing No. 3 Texas A&M and Arkansas-Pine Bluff.  The Aggies were too strong, taking a 4-0 victory in the first match before Ole Miss dispatched the Golden Lions 5-0.

Texas A&M and Ole Miss began play at Noon.  The Aggies quickly jumped out of the gate, taking the doubles point.  Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar and Wen Sun defeated Caroline Rohde-Moe and Marija Milutinovic 8-2 at No. 2 doubles before Ines and Paula Deheza clinched the doubles point with an 8-4 win over Julia Jones and Allie Robbins on court three.

Ole Miss started well in singles, but the Aggies would not be shaken.  Stefania Hristov and Sun defeated Iris Verboven and Milutinovic respectively to give Texas A&M a 3-0 lead.  No. 4 ranked Sanchez-Quintanar closed out the victory with a win over No. 39 Rohde-Moe 6-2, 6-3. 

“Texas A&M is a very good team,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “In doubles, they were definitely were the better teams.  In singles, we were up in four of those six matches, but you have to capitalize against a team as good as Texas A&M and when you don’t it’s going to be an uphill battle.”

In the second match, the Rebels began with singles against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.  Mai El-Kamash recorded the Rebels’ first point with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Khadijah Kenyatte at No. 3 singles.  Caroline Rohde-Moe followed up with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Maria Cabane at No. 1 and Iris Verboven completed a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Monica Arcos at No. 4 singles.

Playing No. 2 singles, Julia Jones would clinch the win 6-1, 6-1 over Fabiola Cardoso.  Santa Shumilina, competing at No. 5, finished the day with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Elizabeth Rodriguez. 

Ole Miss finished the regular season 14-12 overall and 5-8 in the SEC.  The Rebels will head to Starkville, Miss. to compete in the 2013 SEC Women’s Tennis Championship as the No. 9 seed.  Ole Miss will open play against No. 8 South Carolina at 8 a.m. Thursday at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre.  The winner of that match will move on to play No. 1 seed Georgia.  

“Any match is going to be tough,” Beyers said, referring to the SEC Tournament.  “If we do play any team we lost to before, we’d like to see if there is any kind of revenge factor there, if we can come back and beat a team we lost to before.  Obviously you want to keep playing, so we will try to win that first round and hopefully get to play again.”
