OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s tennis team heads to Little Rock, Ark., this weekend to participate in the inaugural Country Club of Little Rock Collegiate Invitational.

The Rebels will compete against 2012 NCAA Tournament participants Arkansas, and Texas Tech as well as Oklahoma, Friday, Saturday and Sunday in matches that will count towards individual records, but not team records.  

“There will be four really good teams competing this weekend,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “We’ll get great matches in both singles and doubles, which at this stage of the season, is what we need.  Some of the girls were able to get that at Duke, and for the most part it went well.  We’ll take the rest of the team to Arkansas, so more of them will be able to get in singles and doubles matches.  This will help us for the rest of the fall as well as the spring.  With four top 40 teams, including two in the top 25, it will be great competition.”

The Rebels are led by junior Caroline Rohde-Moe, who is ranked No. 55 in the nation, and beat one of the nation’s top players last weekend on her way to the finals of the Duke Fab Four Invitational.  Sophomores Erin Stephens and Julia Jones and Marija Milutinovic, who all competed at Duke, will be in Little Rock as well as sophomores Paige Keating and Iris Verboven and freshman Allie Robbins.

Ole Miss will kick off the tournament Friday at 10 a.m. with doubles against Oklahoma followed by singles versus Texas Tech.  Saturday, the Rebels will play Arkansas in doubles at 10 a.m., followed by singles against Oklahoma.  The invitational concludes Sunday with the doubles matches against Texas Tech and then singles matches versus Arkansas.
