The No. 19 Texas A&M women’s tennis team traveled to Waco and controlled the day against Baylor with a perfect 4-0 win on Sunday, Feb. 25 at Hurd Tennis Center.

The Aggies enjoyed a sweep of Rice the week before and continued their dominance from the start against Baylor. The Maroon and White captured the point in doubles play, thanks in large part to No. 4-ranked doubles partners junior Mary Stoiana and sophomore Mia Kupres.

A 6-3 win by fifth-year Sydney Fitch and sophomore Nicole Khirin over the Bears’ freshman Zuzanna Frankowska and sophomore Lauren Littell earned A&M an advantage. Stoiana and Kupres finished the doubles point off and secured a 6-2 victory over junior Brooke Thompson and sophomore Daniella Dimitrov, giving the Aggies the upper hand heading into singles.

In singles play, the Maroon and White kept the pressure on the Bears and took the first set on every court. No. 1-ranked Stoiana lived up to the hype and bested junior Sierra Berry on Court 1 without surrendering a single game, 6-0, 6-0. No. 19 Khirin got the Aggies on the doorstep of victory with a hard-fought win over Frankowska, 6-2, 6-4.

The Aggies held the upper hand in the remaining three courts, but it was junior Jeanette Mireles who ended the day for A&M. Mireles beat freshman Lindsay Patton handedly, winning both sets 6-2.

Kupres, freshman Lucciana Perez, and sophomore Daria Smetannikov all had the advantage over their respective opponents before A&M clinched victory.

“Baylor is always a tough team to play and a tough place to play at,” coach Mark Weaver said. “I am very pleased with our team performance.”

The Maroon and White have a quick turnaround, as they take on the SMU Mustangs at the Mitchell Tennis Center on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 5 p.m.
