Baylor women’s tennis is set to take on No. 11 Ohio State at 5 p.m. Friday at Hurd Tennis Center. It marks the fourth-straight ranked foe for the Lady Bears.
Baylor is coming off a 1-1 Pac-12 road trip over the weekend where the Lady Bears fell to No. 17 Oregon, 4-3, before defeating No. 32 Washington, 4-1.
“Ohio State had its best season ever with a Final Four appearance last year and they have a lot of their players back,” head coach Joey Scrivano said in a statement. “It’s going to be an incredibly tough challenge for us, but I like the way our team’s coming together. The girls are focused and putting in the work. On Friday, it’s going to be all about being all-in, playing with passion and having a purpose. If we continue to do that, then great things are going to happen for us.”
Ohio State enters the dual match with a 5-1 record, its lone loss coming to 12th-ranked Wake Forest, 4-3. Baylor is 4-6 on the season with each of those losses to a program currently ranked in the Top 30.
