OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team continues on the road this weekend in the SEC, traveling to face Kentucky and Vanderbilt.   The Rebels and Wildcats will face off Friday at 3 p.m. CT at the Boone Tennis Complex.  

The Rebels have had a difficult start to conference play as they are still searching for the first win after going 0-2 last weekend at Georgia and Tennessee.  The 4-3 loss to the Lady Vols marked the Rebels’ third 4-3 loss in four SEC matches.

“We’ve had a great week of practice and are looking forward to two great opportunities on the road at Kentucky and at Vanderbilt,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “We hope to be able to bounce back from a tough loss at Tennessee in which I felt we played really good singles. I think it is just going to take winning one close match in order to kick start this team’s season.”

The Rebels are led by junior Caroline Rohde-Moe, who is ranked No. 39 in the latest singles rankings with a 19-11 overall record 5-5 at No. 1 singles.  She will try to win her 20th match of the season this weekend.  Freshman Mai El Kamash made her debut in the rankings at No. 66.

Kentucky comes into the weekend ranked No. 38 with a 11-7 overall record, 2-2 in the SEC.  They are coming off a 5-2 to No. 3 Texas A&M.  The Wildcats are led by freshman Nadia Ravita who is ranked No. 38 with a 13-2 at No. 1 singles.

On Sunday, the Rebels will travel to Nashville, to face No. 13 Vanderbilt.    The Commodores enter the weekend at 10-5 overall and 3-1 in the SEC.  They are coming off a 6-1 win over Missouri.  The Commodores are led by Lauren Mira, who is ranked No. 46 with a 14-9 overall record, 5-4 at No. 1 singles.
