2013 Omaha Women’s Tennis – Match #2 Recap – North Dakota

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Recaps,Women's Tennis — Jon Green @ 4:32 am

Omaha got their 2nd win of the year as they beat North Dakota 4-3 behind a strong doubles effort and some solid singles play.  Omaha took two of the three doubles matches highlighted by Tiffany Hottman and Molly Matricardi winning the #2 doubles match 8-1.

In singles play every match was won in straight sets with Omaha picking up a victory in #2 singles as Molly Matricardi won her match 6-4, 6-2. Omaha also got a victory from Emily Pierson in #4 singles, 6-0, 6-1. Finally Jacqueline Baude picked up a victory in #5 singles with a 7-6, 6-2 win.

The only change in lineup for Omaha from their first match was Emily Pierson joining her sister Rachel Pierson for the #3 doubles matchup. They were victorious 8-5.

North Dakota wasn’t the best competition, they were 1-6 to start their season coming into Friday night.

Upcoming opponent:
Omaha faces Arkansas-Little Rock on Wednesday the 20th at 10 am at the Hanscom Brandeis Tennis Center. The Trojans are 4-2 this year and have matchups with Washburn (Saturday the 16th), Rockhurst and UMKC (Sunday the 17th), and Creighton (Tuesday the 19th) before their match with the Mavericks. After facing Omaha they’ll hang around to face Nebraska on Friday before facing Wyoming in Lincoln on Saturday. Quite the one week road trip!  Amazingly the Nebraska game will mark the midpoint of their season just a day after they are Omaha’s 3rd match out of 20. In college tennis schedules are not remotely made equal.
