Razorbacks down Missouri on Sunday for ninth straight win

COLUMBIA, Mo. — No. 24 Arkansas remained undefeated with a 4-2 win over Missouri on Sunday afternoon.

The Razorbacks improved to 9-0 this spring and 3-0 in Southeastern Conference play.

After a weather delay, Arkansas started with singles play and built an advantage early when senior Tatum Rice defeated Missouri’s Valentina Vazquez on court three 6-3, 6-0.

Laura Rijkers followed shortly after with a straight-set win of her own on court six, a 6-3, 6-1 win over Serena Nash. With the win, Rijkers improves to 6-0 on the season in singles play.

The Tigers fired back on courts one and four to tie the score at two match wins apiece. Kelly Keller fell to Bronte Murgett 6-3, 6-4 on court one and Morgan Cross dropped her set to Marta Oliveira on court four 6-3, 6-3.

The Razorbacks regained the lead with a win from Lauren Alter 6-4, 6-4. She defeated Mizzou’s Elys Ventura on court five to put Arkansas out in front, 3-2.

Clinching the win for Arkansas on court two was freshman Indianna Spink. She secured a 6-3 set-one win over her opponent, Ellie Wright, and then found herself trailing 5-2 in the second. Spink made an impressive comeback and ultimately defeated Wright 6-3, 7-5.

The Razorbacks return to Fayetteville for a Friday-Sunday series against SEC foes, No. 10 Vanderbilt and Kentucky. Friday’s match against the Commodores at the Billingsley Tennis Center is set to begin at 3 p.m.
