Tennis Team v. UGA

COLUMBIA, Mo. — University of Missouri tennis preps for a weekend tour across Alabama with action against No. 12 Auburn University on Friday, March 8, and No. 15 University of Alabama on Sunday, March 10.

Mizzou came off a stacked weekend with doubleheaders on Friday and Sunday, splitting the matches 2-2. The Tigers clinched two matches against Lindenwood University, winning both 4-0. Senior Mae Canete and junior Inah Canete swept their doubles action against the Lions in the No. 1 spot for the Tigers, 6-0. M. Canete, I. Canete, and sophomore Andrea Artimedi all secured singles wins in each afternoon match, which pushed Mizzou to grab both victories against Lindenwood. The Tigers saw their first SEC action against Georgia and Tennessee for the 2024 season in their weekend home opener. 

Continuing SEC play, the Tigers are set to face off against Auburn (8-5) in Auburn, Alabama in their third conference match.
