National and conference recognitions pile up for the Oklahoma Baptist Lady Bison in a strong week of tennis.
GAC competition has been friendly towards OBU.
After losing seven in a row, OBU has rattled off four consecutive wins as of Sunday, April 14.
This included three conference match victories in a row.
With the potential to make it four in a row, they face GAC-foe Henderson St. Monday, April 15 right here on Bison Hill.
Through the course of their winning streak, the Lady Bison have posted two shutouts while squeaking out their other two matches 4-3.
Alex Bowers went 4-0 in singles over the week, earning her GAC Player of the Week honors.
Bowers is now 11-7 on the season.
Lady Bison Kim Moosbacher is gaining national recognition.
With her 15-2 singles record at No. 1, Moosbacher was ranked No. 9 in the ITA Division II Women’s National Singles Rankings.
Only four of her 15 wins have gone three sets.
Moosbacher has been dominating on the court and she will hope to continue her efforts for the big dance in a week.
The Oklahoma Baptist Women are now 7-11 on the season.
Three of those seven wins are against GAC opponents as OBU holds a 3-1 conference record.
With the Arkansas Tech match initially meant for Saturday, April 13 being postponed, that match will spell the conference finale for OBU.
OBU’s final non-conference match is Tuesday, April 16 against Midwestern State-Texas.
With the GAC match against Henderson St. Monday, April 15 and then one more conference match to follow, the Lady Bison are looking to go 5-1 over GAC competition.
Play appears very similar to last year’s team that swept through conference play and won the GAC Championship.
With the GAC Championship just over a week away, the Lady Bison have their eyes set on hardware in Bentonville.
