Cowgirls Tennis Fall At #19 Oklahoma

By: Martyn Fletcher

The Wyoming Cowgirl tennis team concluded its first few days of spring play Monday afternoon on the road, losing to 19th-ranked Oklahoma, 7-0.

At the No. 1 singles position, Maria Oreshkina won a set over the Sooners’ Carmen Corley, 7-5, but ultimately lost the match after dropping the third set tiebreaker 10-5. At the No. 2 spot, Noesjka Brink’s four-match winning streak was snapped in a 6-2 and 6-3 defeat to Ivana Corley.

Oklahoma won the first two doubles matches of the day, at No. 1 and 3. The Cowgirls were trailing in the No. 2 position match before play was suspended after OU took the doubles point.

Wyoming now has a six-day break before they face Northeastern State January 23 in a 3 p.m., match as the Cowgirls will play their fifth match to open spring play in the state of Oklahoma.
