Seminole, Oklahoma -

The Seminole State College Lady Trojans tennis team picked up a big NJCAA win today over 9th ranked North Central Texas College.  SSC knocked off NCTC by a close 5-4 margin, winning 2 out of the 3 doubles and splitting the 6 singles matches.

In doubles play, SSC's Barbara Oliveira and Joanna Torress won a close 9-7 match at #1, while DJ Cunningham and Christina Lebarre got an easier win at #3 by a score of 8-3. Chelsea Smith and Diana Lozano played many close games, but could not come away with a game and lost by the score of 8-0 at #2 doubles.

In singles play, SSC picked up three wins at #1 Barbara Oliveira, #3 Diana Lozano, and at #5 Christina Lebarre to secure the 5 points needed to win the dual and seal the match.

Coach Nelson's Comments:
"The conditions today were very hard to play in, with extreme wind. We probably had gusts of 30-35 mph at times today, but our ladies stayed calm and showed toughness by beating a good NCTC team. This is the first time ever that we have beat North Central, as they are a traditional women's powerhouse in Women's Juco tennis and i'm very proud of our girls. We've been battling injury, and even played this match without our #2 girl Cassandra Kleber, but the girls have improved tremendously over the past few weeks. We have now won 3 out of our last 4, and hope to continue that this week with some more big Jr. College matches."
