NORMAN, Okla. – The 32nd-ranked University of Oklahoma women’s tennis team hosts two matches over the weekend, OU faces Iowa on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 1 p.m., and No. 47 TCU on Sunday, Feb. 19 at noon at the Headington Family Tennis Center.

Oklahoma (4-4) hopes to snap its three match losing streak this weekend. The Sooners lost to then-ranked No. 20 Tulsa, No. 32 Arkansas and No. 25 Yale in their last three matches.

“These last few weeks have definitely toughened us up quite a bit,” OU head coach David Mullins said. “I believe we are ready to play some very good tennis this weekend.”

The Sooners are3-0 in Norman this season after winning their first three matches of the season against Drake, Arkansas-Little Rock and North Texas at home.

“It is nice to be back home and we are determined to take full advantage of these opportunities,” Mullins said.

Iowa (3-0) is undefeated and will face its first road match of the season against Oklahoma Saturday. The Hawkeyes have wins against Illinois State, Illinois Chicago and Iowa State and are currently undefeated in doubles play.

TCU (3-2) has lost two straight to Baylor and North Texas after winning its first three to open the season. Sunday’s match in Norman will be just the second road match for TCU this year, the first was at No. 8 Baylor.

Admission to all OU women’s tennis home events is free.
