2013 Omaha Women’s Tennis – Match #1 Recap

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Recaps,Women's Tennis — Jon Green @ 12:36 am

Maverick women’s tennis has only played once so far this year, a 7-0 win over Nebraska Wesleyan. Omaha won every set played and had two double bagels, freshman Emily Pierson at #4 singles and sophomore Jacqueline Baude at #5 singles. Sophomore Alex Tran won #1 singles 6-1, 6-0 while freshman Molly Matricardi won 6-2, 6-1 at #2 singles. Lindsay Weideman, the senior from Omaha, won #3 singles 6-2, 6-1 and sophomore Rachel Pierson won #6 singles 6-2, 6-2.

In doubles Omaha teamed up Tran and Baude at #1 doubles and they won 8-1. Matricardi combined with another freshman, Tiffany Hottman, at #2 doubles and won 8-4. Weideman combined with Rachel Pierson at #3 doubles and they were victorious at 8-4 as well.

Omaha has a young team. With a sophomore at #1, #5, and #6 singles and freshman at #2 and #4 singles the Mavericks have some room to grow. Matricardi is from McKinney, Texas where she was a state regional qualifier in girl’s doubles. Emily Pierson is Rachel’s twin sister and won two state doubles championships at Red Oak with her. Hottman won a state championship in #1 doubles at Elkhorn South as a junior. Hopefully this talented group will take the Mavericks to new heights over the next few years. Omaha went 7-12 last year but only had one D1 win.

Omaha next takes on North Dakota on Friday, February 15th at 6 pm at the Hanscom Brandeis Tennis Center. The former “Fighting Sioux” are without a nickname currently and will stay that way until 2015, so now you know what to call them. They are 1-3 on the year with the only win over D2 Minnesota State-Moorhead. They recently lost 2-4 to South Dakota State and will have three matches this weekend meaning they’ll have played seven to Omaha’s one when they meet on the 15th.
