As its final road trip before returning home for four straight matches, the No. 41 Minnesota women’s tennis team travels to Oklahoma this weekend where it will contest against the Cowgirls of Oklahoma State and the Sooners of the University of Oklahoma on consecutive days.

The Gophers look to improve their current 2-4 mark on the season.  After opening the season with back-to-back wins over Marquette and Montana, the Maroon and Gold have lost four straight. Most recently, the Gophers fell against Louisville and Virginia Tech last weekend. Freshman Jessika Mozia leads the team with a 14-7 overall record and is 4-2 in spring play.

First, Minnesota will stop in the neutral territory of Oklahoma City for a 1 p.m. battle with No. 42 Oklahoma State. It will be only the third time the two teams have met on the court with the all-time series tied at one apiece.

Although Oklahoma State sits one spot behind Minnesota in the team rankings, it boasts one individual and one duo among the ITA national rankings. Sophomore Meghan Blevins comes in at No. 89 on the singles side, while also making a No. 39 appearance in doubles as paired with senior C.C. Sardinha.

The girls move to the city of Norman on Sunday to face No. 43 Oklahoma in a noon matchup. The Sooners, who are 2-2 on the season, are anchored by Hermon Brhane, who is the No. 99 singles player, and Whitney Ritche. Brhane comes into the weekend hot off an upset victory over No. 50 Natalie Beazant (Rice). Combined with Ritche, the pair holds the 55th doubles rank.
