OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team, coming off two big wins in SEC play, moved up to No. 36 in the nation as they get set for a four-match homestand beginning with LSU Friday at 3 p.m., at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.
In case of inclement weather, the match will be played indoors at the Gillom Sports Center. Fans will enjoy free hot dogs between doubles and singles and one lucky fan will win two free tickets to Saturday’s baseball game against Texas A&M.
The Rebels defeated No. 38 Kentucky and No. 13 Vanderbilt last weekend to improve 2-4 in the SEC. They earned their first conference win in thrilling fashion beating the Wildcats 4-3. Sophomore Julia Jones clinched the win at No. 2 singles. She won again on Sunday to improve to 4-2 in the SEC.
Junior Caroline Rohde-Moe, ranked No. 39 in the nation, won her 20th match of the year at Vanderbilt. She also evened up her record at No. 1 singles to 6-6.
“We are excited to be back home after two straight weekends on the road,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We need to make sure and carry the confidence and solid play from this past weekend into these upcoming matches. LSU and Arkansas both are good well-coached teams, and we will need to play well to have a chance to beat them.”
LSU comes into the weekend 8-8 overall and 1-5 in the SEC. After getting shut out by Texas A&M, the Tigers defeated Missouri 6-1 for their first SEC win. The Tigers are led by senior Kaitlin Burns who owns a 13-10 overall record, 5-7 at No. 1 singles.
On Sunday, the Rebels will welcome Arkansas to the tennis center at 1 p.m. Fans coming to the match will receive two general admission tickets to the mid-week Arkansas State baseball game between doubles and singles.
Arkansas enters the weekend at 6-10 overall and 1-5 in the SEC. They are led by senior Claudine Paulson who is 16-4 overall and 6-0 in the SEC at No. 2 singles.
