SMU women’s tennis defeated Texas State extending their winning streak to four matches over the Bobcats.
“We are pleased with the 7-0 win,” said head Coach Kati Gyulai. “We did a good job closing out matches both in doubles and in singles.”
The Mustangs will take on Texas Tech on the road March 1 at 5 p.m. Texas Tech is the defending Big 12 champion and was recently picked third in the coaches’ preseason poll.
Tech’s last match was a 4-3 loss to The University of Alabama bringing their record to 6-3 at No. 21.
SMU men’s tennis is coming off of a 7-0 home victory over Arkansas-Fort Smith last weekend and will take on rival TCU on Saturday before hosting Tulane at the Samuel Grand Tennis Center on Sunday at noon.
TCU is 7-4, standing at No. 51 while Tulane is 3-3 on the season standing at No. 70.
TCU suffered a 5-2 loss in their recent game against Pepperdine at home and Tulane is also coming off a tough 6-1 loss to No. 58 Texas Tech. The Mustang’s last two matches against Tulane have resulted in wins, including a 4-0 victory last March.
