In the Blue Draw, sophomore Mai El Kamash, ranked No. 85 in the nation, won a close three-setter against Oklahoma State’s Megan McCray.   El Kamash won the first set in a tiebreaker 7-6(4) and then McCray took the second set 6-4.  The two played a supertiebreaker to decide the match, and El Kamash won it 10-5.  El Kamash finished the weekend 3-1.

Junior Julia Jones was the other Rebel winner on the day, earning a straight set victory over Furman’s Alex Moreno-Kaste, 6-3, 6-0 in the Black Draw.  Jones also concluded the weekend 3-1.

In the third place match of the Black Draw, junior Erin Stephens lost to Miami’s Stephanie Wagner 6-2, 6-1.  Wagner is ranked No. 52 in the preseason rankings.  In the White Draw, Iris Verboven dropped a tight match to Tessa Lyons of North Carolina, who is ranked No. 92.  Verboven won the first set 6-3, but Lyons took the second 6-3 and the supertiebreaker 10-8.

“I am excited to see that the work the girls have put in this summer and the first few weeks of school has really made a difference in their games,” associate head coach Jason Ontog said.  “The girls played with great intensity against a solid field and were able to pick up some good wins over ranked players.  I know they are excited to get back to work this week and continue our progress.”

The Rebels return to action Sept. 20-22 at the Country Club of Little Rock Invitational.
