After dominating the regular season, the Oklahoma State Cowgirls tennis team has won the 2016 Big 12 championship.

The Cowgirls cruised by Texas Tech 4-0 to claim their first Big 12 title since 2003.

OSU was originally picked to finish second in the conference, only behind the Lady Red Raiders. The Cowgirls silenced the haters, knocking off TTU twice this season, both by 4-0 scores.

Viktoriya Lushkova and Carla Tur Mari won easily 6-2 at No. 2 doubles, while Katarina Adamovic and Vladica Babic battled back from a 5-3 deficit, clinching the doubles point with a 7-5 win.

Up 1-0, the Cowgirls needed just three singles matches to secure the conference championship. Adamovic put the Cowgirls one step closer at No. 1 singles with a 6-4, 6-0 win. Lushkova came in clutch at No. 3 singles, steadily winning 6-2, 6-3.

After winning a tough first set, Babic destroyed her opponent in the second to win the conference tournament for the Cowgirls, 7-5, 6-1.

Oklahoma State will have to wait until tomorrow to find out their NCAA tournament seedings. The Cowgirls are currently ranked 15th in the country and are the regular and conference champions of the Big 12.
