The Oklahoma State men's tennis team put up a valiant effort against Ole Miss on Sunday but fell short 4-3.
The game was not all bad for the Cowboys as they started out by winning the doubles point. This has been an area of difficulty for the Cowboys the last few matches and something interim coach Scoville Jenkins has addressed to his team.
“That is what we have been working on the most is who is going to lead each other on the doubles court,” Jenkins said. “It can’t just be me all the time to do it. It needs to be within them to want it for each other.”
This shift in motivation was clear on the courts as they seemed to be all playing with a chip on their shoulder, as one unit. It was a highlight of the match in an otherwise disappointing outing for the Cowboys.
The Cowboys gave it their all as it came down to the last singles match in which Emile Hudd took Rebels’ Nikola Slavic to three sets but just fell short.
