OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team heads to Little Rock, Ark., this weekend to participate in the Country Club of Little Rock Collegiate Invitational.
On Friday, players will play two rounds of doubles and one round of singles before playing one round in both on Saturday. Sunday will include the finals matches of singles and doubles.
“After a great start to the fall season at the Duke invitational this past weekend, the Country Club of Little Rock Invitational gives our kids another opportunity to measure themselves against some of the nation’s best,” said head coach Mark Beyers.
The Rebels are led by senior Caroline Rhode-Moe, ranked No. 39 in the nation. Junior Julia Jones and sophomores Marija Milutinovic and Allie Robbins will join Rhode-Moe in the field. Of the four Rebels, Jones is the only one to have participated in the Duke Fab Four Invitational last week. She went 3-1 in that tournament.
Ole Miss will face players from Arkansas, Houston, Memphis, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Last year, Texas Tech finished with a No. 18 national ranking, Memphis finished with a No.32 ranking and Oklahoma finished at No. 35.
“All the programs there are NCAA Tournament caliber teams, and it will give us coaches a chance to see how we measure up to those programs and at the same time show us what we need to work on individually with our players,” said Beyers.
Rhode-Moe and Milutinovic will pair up for doubles play on Friday. The duo received a No. 24 preseason ranking. Jones and Robbins will also pair up for the Rebels.
