OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 26 nationally ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team continues a seven-match homestand this weekend hosting No. 36 Oklahoma State and No. 39 Washington.

The first 100 fans to enter Friday’s match against Oklahoma State at 2 p.m. will receive an “I Love Ole Miss” t-shirt. The match is scheduled to be played at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center, but could be moved to the Gillom sports center due to weather.

The Rebels (1-2) have not played a match since the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.  Junior Caroline Rohde-Moe, ranked No. 27 in singles, leads the team with a 17-6 overall record, 3-0 at No. 1.  

“It’s a big weekend for us,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “We have two quality teams coming in.     We’ve had two solid weeks of practice both indoor and outdoor to get ready and work on some things.  We are looking forward to the challenge this weekend.  Hopefully we’ve improved as a team and as individuals and we can showcase that this weekend.”

The players echoed their coach, saying they are hoping to continue where they left off, downing Illinois 4-0 in their last match.   

“I am excited to get back on the courts this weekend,” said freshman Mai El Kamash, who is settling in to a routine since joining the team at the beginning of January.  “We haven’t had a great start to the season, but I know we can do better.  We are looking forward to the opportunity with these matches.”

Oklahoma State comes into the weekend at 4-1, coming off wins against Columbia, Arkansas and Minnesota. The Cowgirls currently have two players in the ITA singles rankings. Senior Malika Rose is ranked No. 75 and sophomore Meghan Blevins is ranked No. 125.

On Sunday, the Rebels will take on Washington at 11 a.m.  Fans coming to Sunday’s match will have a chance to win an IPod shuffle.

Washington comes into the match with a record of 4-1 this season, with their only loss coming against No. 2 UCLA.  

Admission to all home matches is free.  Visitors to the Ole Miss campus are required to display a Visitors Day Pass Monday-Friday during the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. if they do not want to receive a citation.  These passes are $3.00 a day, or a year long pass may be purchased for $25.00.  Passes can be purchased/picked up at the Department of Parking and Transportation Office (located in Kinard Hall).  Checks and cash only will be accepted as payment. 

Guests who do not wish to purchase a Visitor Pass may park for free at the Jackson Avenue Center and ride the Express Brown Route directly to the Tennis Center.  Buses run Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 6:15 p.m.  Saturday-Sunday parking is free and open.  For more information please go to www.olemiss.edu/parking.
