OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 43 nationally ranked Ole Miss Women’s tennis team will finish out the regular season with home matches against Missouri, No. 3 Texas A&M and Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
The Rebels (13-11, 4-7) picked up three wins on Tuesday in Nashville, sweeping two from Tennessee State and then downing Lipscomb 4-0 in the nightcap.
Fans coming to Friday’s match at 3 p.m. against league newcomer Missouri will enjoy free chicken between doubles and singles and will also receive a collector poster of Vief Vlaar.
“Missouri has had some big wins, they beat Tennessee a couple of weeks ago,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We played A&M last year at the kickoff and we were able to win 4-3, but they obviously have a very good senior-laden team and they have had a great year. We are going to have to play our best to pick up two wins.”
Missouri comes into the match 9-10 overall and 2-9 in the SEC. The Tigers are led by Cierra Gaytan-Leach, who comes in ranked No. 86 in the nation in singles.
Sunday’s match at noon against Texas A&M will be “Sumo Sunday.” Two lucky fans will have an opportunity to win reserved tickets to the Ole Miss versus Kentucky baseball game, Friday April 26th at Swayze Field. Participants will play a tennis game in the sumo suits.
Texas A&M comes into the match ranked No. 3 nationally with a record of 18-2 overall and 10-1 in the SEC. Their only loss in the conference came to No. 4 Georgia. The Aggies are led by the nation’s No. 4 ranked singles player, Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar.
Following the A&M match, Ole Miss will play Arkansas-Pine Bluff at 4 p.m. in a non-conference match.
“It’s a big weekend for us, the last weekend before the SEC tournament and we have two big teams coming in,” Beyers said. “The weather is supposed to be great, and we would love to have a big crowd come help us kick off a big weekend of activities surrounding the Grove Bowl.”
