OXFORD, Miss. – In the final tune-up for Southeastern Conference play, the No. 34 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team will host a pair of matches this weekend at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.  This weekend marks the first outdoor matches for the Rebels, weather permitting.

Friday, the Rebels (3-1) will welcome Lipscomb at Noon.   Fans will enjoy making ice cream sundaes between doubles and singles, and one lucky fan will win a gift card for correctly guessing the end time of the doubles. On Sunday, Ole Miss hosts No. 32 ranked Memphis at Noon with free pizza between doubles and singles.

“We are looking forward to playing at home.  It’s been a couple of weeks since we played a match,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “It looks like it’s going to be a great weekend from a weather standpoint.  Hopefully we’ll have some people come out before baseball.  Memphis should be a great match on Sunday, from an RPI standpoint.  They have a great team, and we have a great team. We have had some excellent practices, and we are excited to see that translate to the matches, as we work towards the start of SEC play next weekend.”

In their last match, the Rebels swept Jacksonville State 7-0 to record their third shutout of the season.   The Rebels are led by senior Caroline Rohde-Moe who owns a 12-8 record, including 2-0 at No. 1 singles.  Freshman Zalina Khairudinova and junior Julia Jones come into the weekend at 6-0 overall in doubles this spring, including 4-0 in dual matches.  

This weekend Coach Beyers, as he goes for his 200th career win.  It would be his 150th win at Ole Miss.  He posted a 50-8 record in three years as the head coach for his alma mater, Armstrong Atlantic State.

Lipscomb comes into Friday’s match at 5-2 overall.  In their last match, they defeated Austin Peay 4-3.  The Lady Bison have losses to UTC and MTSU.  They are led by junior Deahna Welcher, whose sister played for Memphis.  Ole Miss downed Lipscomb 4-0 last year in Nashville.   

Memphis earned their first ever NCAA Tournament victory in 2013.  The Tigers are led by 99th-ranked Stefanie Mikesz, who owns a 13-5 overall record, 5-3 at No. 1 singles. The Rebels lead the series 22-3 and posted a 7-0 shutout in the last meeting in 2009.

Admission to all home matches is free.
