K-State women’s tennis (8-14, 1-6) traveled to Oklahoma this weekend for a pair of weekend matches that could have potentially boosted the team during their seven-game road stretch. Instead, the Wildcats fell to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and are now 1-4 with two games remaining in the regular season.
On Friday, the Wildcats came up short in an upset bid against Oklahoma, 4-2. The Sooners secured the lead, 1-0, early by winning the doubles point with victories at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles.
K-State was able to return the favor in singles play. Sophomores Palma Juhasz and Livia Cirnu each won matches to bring the game to a 3-2 score. Oklahoma finished off the match at No. 6 singles with a nail-biting, three-set match.
Oklahoma State continued a domination of the Wildcats on Sunday, topping K-State 4-0. The Cowgirls inched by the Wildcats to clinch the opening doubles point, before eventually securing the team match victory in singles play with wins coming at No. 3, No. 5 and No. 6 singles.
K-State will travel to the Lone Star State this weekend to finish regular season competition against the Texas Longhorns and Baylor Bears on Friday and Sunday.
