STARKVILLE, Miss. – Following a five-match road swing, Mississippi State Women’s Tennis will return to its home courts at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre to face No. 51 Arkansas on Friday at 3 p.m. and No. 54 LSU on Sunday at 1 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the match could be moved to McCarthy Gymnasium.

The Lady Bulldogs (6-8, 0-6 SEC) posted a 1-2 record in their last week of competition. MSU began by sweeping doubles play in the team’s solid 4-1 triumph over the Lady Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee, but could not continue the winning streak, falling in consecutive matches against No. 13 Vanderbilt and No. 38 Kentucky.

MSU freshman Georgiana Patrasc stole an impressive court 1 win against Vandy’s No. 46 ranked Lauren Mira in the team’s 6-1 loss in Nashville. Patrasc currently stands at 8-6 in dual match singles play with a solid 3-3 SEC record. In the match against Kentucky, Patrasc paired with fellow Lady Bulldog Petra Ferancova to post the team’s lone victory, defeating Edmee Morin-Kougoucheff and CeCe Witten of UK in an 8-5 decision on court 2.

Lady Razorback tennis (8-10, 1-5 SEC) most recently posted two solid victories in back-to-back matches against Jackson State on Wednesday. Arkansas took the first match 4-0 and posted a 5-0 shutout in the second.

Arkansas boasts two ranked singles on their roster: No. 68 ranked Yang Pang and No. 93 ranked Claudine Paulson. In addition, Paulson pairs up with teammate Segou Jonker to claim the No. 59 slot nationally in doubles.

LSU stands at 8-8 overall and 1-5 in the SEC. They will face Ole Miss in Oxford Friday before heading to Starkville for the Sunday affair with MSU.
