NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma women's tennis team hopes to claim a victory against state rival Tulsa on Wednesday. The match is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. at the Westwood Tennis Courts in Norman. The Sooners are ranked 62nd in the latest ITA poll while TU is ranked 61st. OU's top singles player, Viviana Mracnova, enters the match ranked 85th nationally.

The OU women are looking to boost their record to 4-3 after three consecutive losses to Texas-Arlington, TCU and Texas. Tulsa comes to Norman riding a two-game winning streak, which includes a victory over 42nd-ranked Kansas. Earlier this spring, TU captured wins against nationally ranked Rice (68th) and UTEP (74th). In OU's last meeting against Tulsa on March 31 of last year, the Sooners posted a 5-4 victory.
