Conference Highlights
In 2013, the Cowgirls advanced to the Big 12 Conference Tournament finals with wins over TCU and Baylor, before falling in the championship match.

In March of 2014, the Cowgirls became the first women's team in the Big 12 to host the USTA's College MatchDay program for a match against 14th-ranked Oklahoma. The thrilling match was broadcast on ESPN3 and came down to a tiebreaker in the third set on the first singles court. The Cowgirls came up with the 4-2 victory in front of hundreds of fans at the Greenwood Tennis Center and even more college tennis fans around the globe.
