STARKVILLE, Miss. - Following its debut weekend of Southeastern Conference play, Mississippi State Lady Bulldog tennis (5-3, 0-2 SEC) will next take to the road with a Friday match against the No. 62 ranked Lady Vols of Tennessee (2-5, 0-1) beginning at 4 p.m. CT.

The Lady Bulldogs posted some impressive individual victories against No. 17 Auburn and No. 5 Alabama last weekend, despite falling in both matches. MSU freshman Georgiana Patrasc had a particularly standout week, posting a 6-2, 7-6(7) victory against Alabama's No. 36 ranked Alexa Guarachi at the No. 2 position to bring her to a 6-3 record in dual match action this spring. Patrasc also notched a singles win versus the Tigers Friday.

Alexandra Perper is 5-3 this spring at the No. 1 position, while true freshman Sarai Flores has notched a 5-2 mark at No. 6.

The Lady Bulldog doubles pair of Perper and Naomi Tran notched a huge upset triumph against Alabama as well, taking down the No. 4 nationally ranked duo of Guarachi and Mary Anne Macfarlane in an 8-3 decision at the top spot. Perper and Tran stand undefeated on the season at 6-0.

Tennessee dropped its debut SEC competition this past weekend, falling 6-1 to No. 7 Georgia this past Saturday in Knoxville. UT boasts a ranked doubles pair and two ranked singles players in its lineup. Brynn Boren and Kata Szekely for the Lady Vols hold the No. 5 slot nationally in doubles play. UT's Boren also claims the No. 21 singles ranking and is joined by Szekely, who stands at No. 43.

"The girls have been competing harder each weekend. We need to keep that trend moving forward because the competition remains very high," said head coach Daryl Greenan.

Following the Friday match against Tennessee, MSU will travel to Athens to take on No. 7 Georgia on Sunday at Noon CT. Updates for these matches can be found through twitter @mstateWT or through live stats at hailstate.com.
