OU Women's Tennis Wins at over A&M - In Final Four - 1st Time

Post by OUBeliever56A »

The OU Women's Tennis Team playing in the Final 8 on Friday won over the Texas* A&M Aggies 4-3 to reach the Final 4 for the first time in their history. The matches are being played in Champaign, Ill.

The win involved some Sooner Magic however. After taking the opening doubles point with the #1 Doubles team (Corley sisters) and the #3 Doubles team (Guzman/Staker) winning over their A&M opponents the singles matches were a bit tougher.

The Sooners were on the wrong side of the first two singles matches and trailed at 2-1 quickly. After a win by the #1 Singles player for OU, Layne Sleeth, to even the match at 2-2, OU dropped the #5 singles match and fell behind at 3-2 with two matches to play.

After dropping the first set, #2 Singles player Carmen Corley played her way to a two set comeback to win her match in 3 sets to even the match with A&M.

In the #6 Singles match which decided the outcome of the match, Emma Staker for OU also trailed after losing the first set. She rallied to win the second set and ultimately the third set to propel the Sooners into the Final Four in the last march to be settled on Friday.

Here is the staff writers article about the historical win for the Women's Tennis Team.

It was a great win by the Sooners over #7 Texas* A&M. On Saturday night the Sooners will face the #3 Duke Blue Devils at 7 PM.

Congrats to the Women's Tennis Team once again!

Once again the Oklahoma Women's Tennis Team goes down to the wire to win a match. For the second match in a row, Emily Straker, the # 6 singles player for the Sooners won the match-deciding point with a 6-0 third set win. That gave the Sooners the 4-3 win over Duke and advances them to the Finals against, wait for it, the Texas* Longhorns. Texas* won over North Carolina 4-2.

The Sooners won two of the doubles matches for the doubles point and 3 of the 6 singles matches for the needed 4 points and the win.

The match against Texas* is Sunday at 7 PM.

Congrats to the women and good luck tomorrow.

It is pretty sad that the I have to report that the Sooner Women's Tennis was defeated by Texas* for the National Championship last night 4-1 with two singles matches still in progress. to start the match, the Sooners lost the double point which is a rare thing. The Sooners usually dominate the double play. After dropping that point, it was an uphill battle.

But I will say proudly, being the runner-up and finishing 2nd should something that all Sooner fans and the team should be very proud of.

I agree 56, this team did us all proud, making it all the way to the finals. They accomplished a great deal and hopefully have moved this program to the next level in both play and recruiting for the future.
