NORMAN, Okla.– The 35th-ranked University of Oklahoma women’s tennis team faces a road match with Rice Sunday, Feb. 26 at 11 a.m., before starting Big 12 play.

Rice (6-3) enters Sunday’s match after its 5-2 loss to Texas A&M on Friday. The Owls are 3-0 at home this season, with wins over Lamar, Louisiana-Lafayette and McNeese State.

Leading the way for the Sooners is Whitney Ritchie.  Ritchie holds the team-best record in both singles and doubles.

Ritchie and senior Marie-Pier Huet are 8-2 overall in doubles and are currently ranked No. 30 in the country in doubles. 

Ritchie and fellow sophomore Mia Lancaster both boast 7-3 records in singles this season to lead the team.

The Sooners return home next Saturday, March 3 for their Big 12 opener against Oklahoma State at noon.
