For the first time in school history, Oklahoma State's women's tennis team advanced to the NCAA Tennis Championship with a 4-3 victory over No. 1 California in the semifinal round.

The Cowgirls will play the winner of defending champion No. 6-seed Vanderbilt and No. 15-seed Stanford at noon Tuesday in Tulsa.

OSU (29-4) has knocked off No. 1 Cal, No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Georgia since the round of 32 en route to a national championship match. Viktoriya Lushkova secured the victory with three-set victory in singles play.

OSU has won 51 total NCAA team national championships with the last one coming in 2012 from the women's equestrian team, which is the only women's team to have won a national title at OSU.
