Lady Razorbacks hope to extended win-streak in SEC play at Rocky Top

FAYETTEVILLE — A three-game Southeastern Conference winning-streak will be on the line for the 22nd-ranked University of Arkansas Lady Razorback tennis team when they face the 20th-ranked Tennessee Lady Volunteers on Friday.

The Lady Vols (10-4, 3-1 in SEC) will try to offset Arkansas’ top netters with No. 71 Caitlin Whoriskey in singles. Whoriskey and Zsofia Zubor are currently ranked No. 9 in doubles, to round out Tennessee’s ranked student-athletes.
