IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa women’s tennis team travels to Des Moines this weekend to compete at the Drake Jamboree. The three-day event begins Friday at 11 a.m. at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center.

The five-team field includes Iowa, Drake, Creighton, Bradley and SIU-Edwardsville. Iowa will travel with seven competitors, including Annette Dohanics, Caitlin Hindmarsh, Morven McCulloch, Ruth Seaborne, Ellen Silver, Aimee Tarun and Katie Zordani.

“We have another opportunity this weekend to get on the court and do something positive,” said UI head coach Katie Dougherty. “We’ve been showing progress this fall, but I’d like to see us finish more matches and develop a habit of consistently expecting positive results. This weekend is another chance to make good things happen, and we need to take advantage of the opportunity.”
