MSU Women’s Tennis Sweeps Sunday Doubleheader 

 Following a morning of showers and storms, the Mississippi State women’s tennis team (4-2) completed a sweep of Samford (3-1) 4-0 and UAB (2-4) 4-1 Sunday afternoon on the MSU campus.


“We didn’t play our best tennis today, but I am proud of the way the girls fought for their wins,” head coach Daryl Greenan said. “Both opponents provided some interesting challenges and I am just happy we were able to play well enough to come out on top. We are going to continue to make adjustments and find ways to get better each week.”


Match 1 - MSU 4, Samford 0


State jumped out to an early lead by taking the doubles point against Samford. On court 3, MSU’s Sara Lizariturry and Anastasia Rentouli made quick work of SU’s Arianna Beltrame and Grace Jennings, 6-2. Clinching the doubles point on court 2, State’s Magda Adaloglou and Janina Braun held off Samford’s Holly Horsfall and Elsa Pool 6-3. The remaining match was suspended at 5-all between MSU’s Madison Harrison and Khrystyna Vozniak and the Samford Bulldog duo of Ellie Gerlach and Roos van der Zwaan.


The Maroon & White continued its dominating ways in singles. On court 6, MSU’s Vozniak routed SU’s Jennings 6-2, 6-1. Following close behind at No. 2, State’s Harrison posted a straight-set victory against Samford’s van der Zwaan 6-2, 6-2.


The clincher came on court 1 as MSU’s Braun posted her first win at the top position against SU’s Gerlach 6-2, 6-4. MSU held one-set leads in two of the three matches that were suspended upon the clinch.


Match 2 - MSU 4, UAB 1


The second half of the doubleheader was very similar to the first with the Bulldogs taking the doubles point. Once again, court 3 was the first to finish with Lizariturry and Rentouli blanking UAB’s Jana Hecking and Natalie Voss, 6-0. Following on court 2, State’s Adaloglou and Braun vanquished the Blazer duo of Dominika Hrabalova and Alex Shchipipakina, 6-2. Harrison and Vozniak had just gone up a break at 5-4 on court 1 when play was suspended.


Continuing the momentum into singles, Bulldog Rentouli was the first off the court with an impressive 6-0, 6-1 win against Blazer Hrabalova at No. 3. UAB got its single point of the day as Hecking defeated State’s Lizariturry, 7-6(2), on court 4after Lizariturry was forced to retire due to injury.


Extending her winning streak to five matches, MSU’s Vozniak overpowered SU’s Sonia Grzywocz 6-2, 6-1 at No. 5 to extend the Bulldog lead 3-1. Clinching the match, the State true freshman Adaloglou outlasted UAB’s Hana Sisirak 6-1, 6-2 at the No. 2 spot.


In the two matches that were suspended, State’s Caroline Kelly led 6-1, 5-3 over UAB’s Natalie Voss on court 6. At No. 1, State’s Braun was down a set to the Blazers’ Shchipakina but led 5-4 in the second.


Next Up For MSU…


State travels to Hammond, La., to face Southeastern Louisiana and Southern University next weekend. The Bulldogs will battle the Lions on Friday, February 9, at 1 p.m. CT. On Sunday, MSU will remain in Hammond to face the Jaguars in a neutral site contest at 11 a.m. CT.
