Women’s tennis heads to Big 12 Championships


The TCU women's tennis team will travel to the University of Oklahoma Friday for the Big 12 Championships.

The Horned Frogs earned the No. 4 seed for the tournament and will face the No. 5 seed Oklahoma State Friday at noon at the Headington Family Tennis Center.

The overall No. 25-ranked Horned Frogs finished their regular season play by falling 4-3 to No. 26 Texas last weekend at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.

"I just have to get everybody back into the line up and get everybody healthy," head coach Dave Borelli said. "Stefanie [Tan] is playing with a thigh muscle issue and we have to get Federica [Denti] back in the line up." 

Denti has been benched because of a leg injury.

"If we get her back into the line up and get everyone playing, I think we are going to be OK," said Borelli. 

TCU's Simona Parajova was named No. 3 singles in the Big 12 individual championship. With a 7-2 mark, Parajova recorded the conference's top record in Big 12 play. Parajova's win totals of 16-6 in the spring and 21-9 overall in singles lead the team. 

TCU clinched a 5-2 win over the Oklahoma State Cowgirls at their last match-up on April 12.
