ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The University of Iowa women’s tennis team wrapped up competition Sunday at the Wolverine Invitational.

“I’m pleased with how we competed this weekend,” said head coach Katie Dougherty. “We played some very good teams and got a lot of great matches in. We were able to play around with our doubles combos and take a look at a couple of different teams.”

The Hawkeyes went 3-4 in their singles matches today. Junior Christina Harazin defeated Natasha Smith of Utah, 6-3, 6-0. Freshman Annette Dohanics beat Kathleen Hawkins of Western Michigan, 7-6, 6-3, upping her season record to 6-1, and sophomore Ellen Silver topped Kelsey King of Western Michigan, 7-5, 6-3.

Junior Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Katie Zordani also put up a tough battle in their singles matches, but both fell short in the third set. Seaborne was defeated by Tereza Berekova of Utah, 6-0, 3-6, 6-4, while Zordani fell to Callie Craig of Utah, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.

Dohanics and Morven McCulloch teamed up to score Iowa’s lone doubles win of the afternoon, defeating Caroline Hitimana and Brianna Morgan of Florida, 8-4.
