No. 69 Wildcats to take on Texas and Baylor

Parker Robb | The Collegian Freshman Iva Bago returns a shot to Oklahoma's Abbi Melrose in K-State's 6-1 tennis loss to the Sooners Friday at the Mike Goss Tennis Stadium. The women's tennis team is looking to get back on its feet Saturday against Texas and Sunday against Baylor after dropping their two home matches against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State last weekend.

After hosting a pair of top-25 tennis teams last weekend, the K-State Wildcats will face a similar task this weekend when they will host No. 25 Texas and No. 16 Baylor.

Competition will start Saturday at 11 a.m. with the Texas Longhorns. The Longhorns have not lost to the Wildcats in their program’s history, holding a 22-0 series lead. Last spring, the Wildcats fell to Texas 6-1.

The Wildcats will then conclude their four-match homestand against the Baylor Bears on Sunday. K-State has not come out on the winning side against Baylor since 2011. Last year, the competition was a close one in Waco, Texas with the Bears squeaking out the win, 4-3.

If weather permits, both matches will take place at Mike Goss Tennis Stadium. After this weekends’ matches, the Wildcats will go on the road for their next two matches.
