OU men win Big 12 tennis title



Neither Oklahoma State nor Texas was supposed to reach Sunday’s final of the Big 12 women’s tennis tournament, but the No. 3-seed and 25th-ranked Longhorns surprised TCU in one semifinal and the No. 5-seed and 32nd-ranked Cowgirls shocked Baylor in the other.

Still, there can be only one and, Sunday afternoon, Texas dominated the Cowgirls on the way to a 4-0 conference championshp victory at OU’s Headington Family Tennis center.

The Longhorns began by claiming the doubles point and, not long after, with victories at Nos. 1, 2 and 6 singles, ended the dual. Also, when it ended, Texas was leading the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 singles matches.

Both teams will soon be making NCAA regional arrangements.
