Waco, Texas - The University of Missouri women's tennis team fell to No. 51 Oklahoma State, 4-0, in the first round of the Big 12 Women's Tennis Championship at the Baylor Tennis Center in Waco.
The Tigers finish the season at 10-12 overall with a 1-11 mark in the Big 12 Conference.
After the loss, Tiger Head Coach Blake Starkey gave credit to the 51st-ranked Cowgirls on their victory.
"OSU just outplayed us. They played well. We played hard. We wish good luck to our seniors, and we are looking forward to next year."
Oklahoma State took control early, winning two doubles matches to earn the doubles point. At No. 1, the Tiger duo of Yelena Olshanskaya and Chrissy Svetlic fell to OSU's Zana Masnic and Yawna Allen, 8-5. At No. 3, the Missouri duo of Charlotte Bellis and Lubica Nadasska lost to the Cowgirl duo of Lauren Simmons and Zuzanna Osinska, 8-3. The No. 2 doubles match between OSU's Iryna Tkachenko and Marta Tsivka and Erika Josbena and Amanda Pratzel was not finished after the Cowgirls won the No. 1 and No. 3 matches.
At No. 1 singles, Olshanskaya retired after the fifth game of her first set because of a knee injury. She was leading Oklahoma State's Iryna Tkachenko, 3-2.
Oklahoma State Head Coach Julius Lubicz-Majewski expressed concern about Olshanskaya.
"We are real sorry about their No. 1 player (Olshanskaya) getting hurt. It was unfortunate and you hate to see that."
The No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 singles matches were not finished after Oklahoma State clinched the match with a win at No. 5 singles.
