CARY, N.C. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team wrapped up its first weekend of the fall season Sunday, posting two more wins at the Duke Fab Four Invitational to finish out the competition with 12 wins in singles and doubles.

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.
