NSU (8-5 overall, 3-1 SLC) is currently tied for third in the conference standings with four matches remaining in the regular season. The Lady Demons, who are on a three-match winning streak, most recently defeated Sam Houston State last Friday in a battle that ended in a 4-3 decision.
SFA (8-7, 3-0) ranks second in the Southland standings and is currently on a five-match winning streak. The Ladyjacks have not competed since taking down Arkansas-Littlerock 4-3 on March 19.
Konop, a junior, has compiled a team-best singles record of 11-2 overall and is 4-0 in Southland action. The Kiev, Ukraine native is also 9-4 in doubles play with teammate Natalya Krutova.
Tatiana Larina and Andrea Nedorostova lead the Lady Demons in doubles competition with an 11-2 doubles record at the No. 1 position.
Nedorostova, a senior, has amassed an impressive 65 career doubles wins and is currently tied for second in the NSU record books. She needs just three more victories to become the winningest doubles player in Lady Demon history.
