Women’s Tennis Opens Spring Season On Saturday

STARKVILLE – The Mississippi State women’s tennis team is set to open their 49th season of play on Sunday against Louisiana at 10 a.m. and UAB at 4 p.m. inside the Rula Tennis Pavilion.

Head Coach Daryl Greenan, who is entering his 14th season in maroon and white, has guided MSU to a victory in 12 out of 13 season-openers – including 11 straight wins. Sunday will mark the second meeting between the Bulldogs and Ragin’ Cajuns, while this will be the 31st matchup with UAB.

The Maroon and White have won 53 consecutive non-conference home matches dating back to the 2012-13 season.

State returns five veterans from the 2021-22 season, including Emmanouela Antonaki, Chloé Cirotte, Maddie McKee, Alexandra Mikhailuk and Alessia Tagliente.

Mississippi State has six newcomers – four transfers and two freshman – joining its roster this season. Transfers include No. 61 Maria Rizzolo (Minnesota), Maddie Bemisderfer (Indiana Wesleyan), Gia Cohen (Georgia Tech) and Emily Surcey (Arkansas State). Sydney Hrehor and Dharani Niroshan make up the two freshmen, with both making their Bulldog debut in the fall.

MSU enters the dual-match season after finishing strong, hosting its very own John Cade Invitational. As a team, the Bulldogs earned a 15-6 ledger in singles play to go along with six wins in doubles play.
