The Cowgirl tennis team (0-1 overall) opened up dual play with a tough task and were swept by the 12th ranked Oklahoma State Cowgirls (3-0 overall) on Tuesday night in Stillwater.

The duo of Dorottya Jonas and Miranda Talbert fell to Katarina Adamovic and Vladica Babic, 6-1, while Viktoriya Lushkova and Carla Tur Mari clinched the point with a 6-2 win over Elisa Koonik and Tessa van Der Ploeg. The number one team of Magdalena Stencel and Nastya Tokareva lost to Maria Alvarez and Kelsey Laurente, 6-3.

The momentum carried over to singles as OSU took all six matches. Lushkova defeated Jonas, 6-0, 6-1, followed by Katarina Stresnakova over Talbert, 6-1, 6-0. Laurente earned a straight set win, 6-0, 6-0, over van Der Ploeg. At the sixth spot, Koonik lost to Tur Mari, 6-3, 6-3. The final two Cowgirls in action were Stencel and Tokareva.
