April 10, 2012
STILLWATER, Okla.—The Oklahoma State women’s tennis team fell to the University of Oklahoma on Tuesday, 4-3.
The match began with singles play. The Cowgirls (10-7, 4-3 Big 12) took a quick lead in the first set at each court. However, they could not maintain the momentum, losing four of the six matches.
“I was disappointed with our play in singles,” coach Chris Young said. “We were in a pretty good spot in a couple of matches, and we let them slip away.”
With the Sooners (10-10, 4-3 Big 12) leading 3-0, Meghan Blevins earned a straight-set victory over Marie-Pier Huet at the No. 2 spot, giving the Cowgirls their first point of the day.
The second point for Oklahoma State came from court No. 5 as Mary Jeremiah took Whitney Wofford to a super tiebreaker, where she snatched the victory.
With the match already decided, the teams went head to head in doubles.
Once again, the Cowgirls took a quick lead. This time, they kept the edge over the Sooners for their third point of the day, winning 8-3 and 8-4 on Nos. 1 and 2, respectively.
The Cowgirls return for a weekend of action in Stillwater April 21 when they take on Texas A&M at 2 p.m. and Texas on April 22 at noon.
