TOURNAMENT CENTRAL:


OXFORD, Miss. - For the first time in the history of the event, the No. 19 nationally ranked Ole Miss women's tennis will host the ITA Kick-Off Weekend at the Gillom Sports Center Sunday.  The Rebels face No. 28 Yale Sunday at 2 p.m.

While the Rebel men start their season Friday and Saturday, the women will look to rebound from a disappointing opening loss at William & Mary on Tuesday.

Sunday's action begins with Illinois and Vanderbilt at 9 a.m. followed by the Rebels vs. Yale.   The winners will meet Monday at 1 p.m. for the right to advance to the National Team Indoor Final 16 in Charlottesville, Va., Feb. 8-11.  Admission to all matches this weekend is free.

This marks the fifth year in a row for the Rebels to participate in the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.  Last year, they advanced to the National Team Indoor Final 16 with thrilling wins over Texas A&M and host Florida State.

The Rebels are led by junior Caroline Rohde-Moe who is ranked No. 30 in the nation and leads the team with a 16-4 overall record, 1-0 at No.1 singles.  

Fans will notice a few new faces as the Rebels welcome three newcomers to the lineup this year.  Freshmen Marija Milutinovic and Mai El Kamash and sophomore Santa Shumilina join a squad featuring Rohde-Moe and fellow All-SEC honorees Erin Stephens and Julia Jones.  El Kamash just arrived here two weeks ago and already owns a 3-1 record.

Yale comes into the weekend at 1-0 with a 7-0 shutout of Delaware State last weekend.  The Bulldogs went 20-4 last spring and won the Ivy League. They reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.  Yale boasts three players in the singles rankings led by senior captain Elizabeth Epstein at No. 42.
