On the heels of a Sunflower Showdown defeat, K-State women’s tennis (8-12, 1-4) seeks to improve upon its 1-2 record during its current seven-match road trip as the Wildcats travel to Oklahoma for a pair of weekend matches.

K-State will faceoff against No. 29 Oklahoma tonight in Norman, Oklahoma. The Sooners (11-7, 1-6) lead the all-time series with a 26-13 record, with the last K-State victory coming on March 11, 2012.

The Wildcats will then turn around and battle No. 9 Oklahoma State (16-4, 3-2) on Sunday at 1 p.m in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The Cowgirls hold a commanding 35-6 all-time record over the Wildcats.

Sophomores Palma Juhasz and Iva Bago, who lead the team with 16 wins in singles action, lead the Wildcats into action this weekend. Juhasz holds a 9-7 record this spring with a 6-3 mark at the No. 2 position in the lineup.

The duo of Juhasz and freshman Carolina Costamagna have set the bar in doubles play this season. The pair are 7-1 during the spring and are on a four-match winning streak.

Following this weekend’s match play, K-State travel further south to the Lone Star State to conclude the regular season against No. 36 Texas on Friday, April 17 and No. 7 Baylor on Sunday, April 19.
